Suspending threads in the inferior is very useful.  There are some parts of the Host interface that will be used by the the Native* for that host, e.g. launching.  So there might be things in the Host interface that you wouldn't naively think were necessary.  IIUC however, HostThread operations refer to threads in the lldb process itself, and how you would suspend & resume your own threads and those of another process are likely to be quite different.  So I don't think we need them for that reason.

And you probably never would want to suspend & resume your own threads, that would be a very confusing way to program...
