Yes.  In most cases they do not want to accept the resulting changes.
In fact, they even want to delete support for X11 in its entirety.

They insist that it is unsafe to call anything except for _exit, because
it is not safe to save files after the display server goes down.

It's nonsense, and it's coming from the same group of people who call
