That's not what some android developers said on the discussion, they said anyone can take a suspend blocker and like I replied to them, if you only want suspend blockers to pretty print on UI, there are other less invasive and transparent to apps mechanisms to do so. You don't need opportunistic suspend and suspend blockers.

Blocking suspend blockers

For all practical purposes any app can take a suspend blocker - there's no opportunity for users to tweak the set of permissions an application has, it's fixed by the app developer. However, the UI does warn the user during installation that the app might do this and does provide the accounting that's been discussed.
