No, this proposal does not change the fact that the kernel is generally unaware of frontend capabilities.
it only provides an avenue for limited cases, such as in-process IPython, to express their limitations and avoid wasted rendering, or for users / devs to limit which formats are displayed in general from the kernel side in an easy fashion.
