There is a discussion because of the issues that come with gnome-shell having CAP_SYS_NICE:

One of those issues is the MPRIS player not being capable of displaying albumArts from a URL.

From this issue I see that neither Ubuntu or Debian have this prop, and looks like Fedora is dropping it for 35 because of other issues:

I've disabled it on my Arch system and I don't see any difference on performance and the MPRIS albumArt is working for URLs. (But I'm using linux-zen)

Maybe Arch soulg drop it too for the 41 release?
