Right now, if an application itself inserts a trap into it's source code, on intel it will be easy to resume it from debugger simply by continuing. OTOH, on arm, the user will have to manually update the PC first. So I am not sure which is better here...

Right now I defer this into future. We still need to fixup PC in kernel debuggers... on the other hand in order to advance the register manually on an arbitrary ISA we might need to guess instruction size. It's better to guess it in userland.
