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.

We have no experience so frequent glib2 ABI update.
