Sorry. What? Blockers allow the system to suspend?

Suspend blockers by themselves are of no use. Completely. So any talks
on suspend blockers separated from the sleep policy are completely
pointless.
The suspend blockers are of use when the userspace tries to blindly
freeze the tasks to enter the suspend state. This way of hammering the
system down obviously impacts everything.
