It's very easy to inadvertently move a snap line (e.g. when trying to click on the border of something that has snapped to it). This action doesn't show up in the Undo/Redo list, so you can't put it back unless you've written down the position of the snap line beforehand.

We have to think about whether we really need Undo for this operation.

Well, if you use a snap line in a presentation, and accidentally move it when you are nearly done, the whole presentation has to be laid out again because none of the existing objects are on the snap line anymore. An alternative solution would be to have snap lines themselves snap to objects, so that they could be more easily moved back to their previous position. But I'm not certain I understand "whether we really need undo". One always needs undo. If I make some other mistake, then move a snap line, then undo, I don't get back to the state I was in before I made the mistake. It doesn't make sense for an undo operation to invent a new state.
