XSM is not part of GNOME, nor does it define GNOME philosophy. However,
gnome-session is, so use of XSMP apparently is part of the platform. I
recently ran into a related issue; namely, that gnome-smproxy screws up
gnome-panel in the session in GNOME 2.10. The workaround, and in fact
the 2.14 official fix is to remove gnome-smproxy from the session. There
is a Mozilla bug open, urging Firefox to support X11 session management
to save window state.

It would not be difficult to come to the conclusion that GNOME Platform
might benefit from Epiphany doing the same. Funnily enough, GNOME's
official web browser was not mentioned in the discussion :)

"gnome-smproxy is ditched":

How this relates to Firefox:
