This seems ...inconsistent with my own experiences. What exactly counts as "valid reboot command" and why is it permitted?

I would personally really appreciate a way to enable sandboxed applications to be able to hibernate, restart and shutdown. Currently I am running steam big picture in a sandbox which is a full screen app that I have set to run at system boot. Ideally this app would be able to do the above commands (at least be able to configure it).
