With snapshots, few requests can easily create a tremendous amount of
system load, rendering the system unusable. (Imagine you have a kernel
repository and someone repeatedly requests a tar.xz for it)

In any case, your use-case seems valid as well.

Maybe one could have a setting for enabling/disabling snapshots
altogether and another setting for the snapshot formats which should be
listed? (we already have the latter)
