Since snaps are not supported on powerpc, it also doesn't make sense to have an ubuntu-image package that depends on snapd on this architecture. It is still potentially interesting to have ubuntu-image available on all archs for the 'ubuntu-image classic' use case, so in terms of overall direction I think it's better to have ubuntu-image drop its dep on snapd on powerpc and NOT have livecd-rootfs drop its dep on ubuntu-image on powerpc, in addition to having snapd available again on powerpc as a dummy package.

It is very unlikely that we will ever SRU back to xenial any support for actual ubuntu-image classic images on powerpc, but just in case this would future-proof it.
