Good points.

By the way, `natbib-note-args' is a pretty old function, but doesn't
follow the standard naming adopted within AUCTeX nowadays.  If you're
going to touch it, please rename it.

I don't agree on this.  The LaTeX packages are incompatible, but
AUCTeX only cares about the user interfaces they provide: if the
macros provided by the natbib package and the natbib compatibility
layer bundled in biblatex were exactly equal, I'd see no reason why we
couldn't load natbib hook within biblatex.  However, you explained
that this is not the case, so I think you can apply the patch you
suggested yesterday.
