Yes.  This is because those are configuration phases.  If a module tries
to do something in those phases and can't, then the server should not
continue to run, because something wasn't configured properly.  If the
server did continue, then it would most likely not behave the way it was
expected to.

I don't know, but it sounds completely incorrect.  Bill, can you shed
any light here?

You are confusing registering and adding hooks.  You should always
register the hooks in register_hooks, but adding the hook to the request
should be done during request processing.  Basically registering a
filter lets the server know that the filter exists, but it doesn't
enable it for any requests.  Adding the filter enables it for that
request.
