No, no reason. In fact, I think the provider interface works
relatively well. I do mention 2 existing hooks which should
be changed (RUN_FIRST to RUN_ALL) which would allow even more

I was just thinking that allowing a hook would allow people
to add things without even using providers, which some
people may like. Plus, it seemed an easy accommodation for
people who "wanted" it (I wasn't one).
