I’d guess targeting something like inkscape-gtk3-devel (bumping the version) would bring up most of the problems with all the dependencies.

But if they are, then you can make the required dependency change to all ports in a single commit. I would not consider it necessary to ask permission of the port maintainers since it's not a matter of opinion; it's just a necessary change so that MacPorts can continue to function as intended.
