That would limit the usefulness of the hook.  It would mean that functions
registered for the hook could only run AFTER the core had created the
scoreboard.  The big use for something like this would actually be
management modules.  The same hook is called at startup and at server

It would make sense to me to have a management module scan the scoreboard
at restart to gather some statistics to report.  The obvious place to do
stuff like this, is in the create_scoreboard hook.
