This might be troublesome in some cases, for example if we want to
import a node together with its version history, or explicitly modify
a version history or a checked out node in ways that don't fit within
the mentioned predefined operations. I wouldn't want to run into cases
where a client can't do something it wants because doing so would
trigger unwanted content modifications by the commit hooks.

I'd rather just have a Validator that ensures that whatever you do,
the version history and related bits are internally consistent and
conform with whatever other constraints we have (location/structure of
version histories, etc.). For example, when making a node versionable,
already the mix:versionable node type requires the presence of
relevant versioning properties, and the versioning validator could
simply make sure that those properties point to existing and valid
version history information.

As for the code duplication argument, I'd take care of that simply by
making the relevant code available as a reusable set of classes. See
for example how the namespace and node type management code is
