I don't know if there is one final solution yet. if so, sorry to open 
thread here.

... yeah why not just remove all hooks, xclasses and remove the backend 
login too because people could to bad things which could look ugly.

sorry I just wanted to state that it is a nobrainer for me.

everything true if it is about a new hook but it is not. see below.

haven't seen a ticket for that and if this hook should have been 
removed, it should also be removed from:

I just said that the change doesn't change any output from the core.

you know the difference between the core and extensions? I am just 
developing an extension which enables btw a feature which is really 
missing in TYPO3: showing localization editors where a change happend in 
the default language.

The issue I brought up is about something totally different. a bit OT here.

OT. This doesn't mean that I am not interested in that discussion, it 
just doesn't belong here, sorry.
