My experience is quite different than yours :
i allways have snap to item enabled.
So my proposal would rather be
"why not make it standard behaviour ?"

One situation :
The SHIFT modifier is allready used so as to keep the original horizontal/vertical ratio
of a frame when changing its size. (This is a standard behaviour accross applications
and OSes, but sometime CTRL is used instead of SHIFT)

With scribus, changing a frame's size also needs to snaps, and snaps fine as it is.

SHIFT cannot be used to trigger both "constrain ratio resize" AND "snap to items".
