I would also like suspend to disk and agree that there are a number of
use cases when it is very practical. For example I am often out of the
country for a weekend. Often it is not practical to recharge the phone
during that time and it would be a lot easier if I could just suspend
to disk and quickly check for missed msgs every couple of hours or so.

Maybe I am biased because I also always suspend my laptop to disk, so
know from experience how nice it is to be able to quickly boot up :)
