Do you feel okay with the idea of allowing proprietary apps to use our

In short, yes.
Can't the platform libraries of gnome be considered as a development
platform, and therefore being legally "linkable" from a GPL2 point of
view, even if the library itself is LGPL?
I mean, I think exceptions exist in GPL to allow programs to link
against proprietary platform libraries, to allow some GPL software to
run in proprietary MacOS or Microsoft ecosystems, don't they? Our own
equivalent of those libraries are glib and gtk+
This would make things a lot simpler.
