I would prefer not to add more things that depend on glib2 than
necessary, just because rebuilding them after the fairly frequent
glib2 updates is a nuisance. However, things like desktop-file-utils
that end up being runtime deps of many other packages are a much
bigger issue in this regard.

(What does desktop-file-utils actually do and is there a reasonable
way to make it lighter?)

Pursuing a replacement seems like a decent plan, assuming someone's
willing to do it. ISTM that it should just be a shell script, but
maybe I'm underestimating how much work it does.
