In android, apps are expected to store state themselves so that when started again they will continue with that state.

As you can imagine, app implementation of this is spotty.

Well, a robust checkpoint and restore feature could be used to implement the behavior Android desires without requiring special, spotty, support from the app.

Full checkpoint/restore is much more resource consuming than having the application be able to serialise its important state and resynthesise the rest later. You probably wouldn't want to encourage the former at the expense of the latter.
