OK. Depending that every extension developer will need to register his 
extension - even if it is already registered, here are my pros then:

- We know who depends on a hook if we once want to modify it
- Developers could see that a hook is available exactly where they need it!
- The hook will be well documented
- Developers have a chance to find practical examples of how hook xy is used
