Should it be done under power management standardization? Both
'knowing idle' and 'keep display on' are use cases for that. "Idle" is
not a good name.

This is different: provides opportunity to do some of the heavy things
while the user does not need immediate performance. This is not
related to power policies: the system knows when to apply power
policies, this does not affect that.

This is a request for power policy exemption. It should indeed go
where power related things are standardized.
