So, how are applications supposed to inhibit suspends? I know of the
org.gnome.SessionManager interface to accomplish this for GNOME but I
don’t expect your application to implement that one. ;-)

Which way is the preferred to handle this? Even if there is no general
interface implemented by the various power management applications, at
least application specific interfaces should be exposed which allow for
inhibiting suspend.
