As far as I can tell, xss-lock is already run when I resume from a suspend.
Ah lol... I was under the impression, that xss-lock would need to be told to lock. It seems loginctl sends out the 'lock-sessions' after waking up from suspend by default.
I'm no systemd expert: what is the intent of the suggest systemd unit?
This would only ensure, that lock already happens right before suspend (in the case, someone wants that). This use-case gets around the problem of showing a small portion of what's going on in your DE/WM right after suspend and only then locking/blanking. IMHO locking before suspend is preferred, but that's probably a matter of taste.
