Here's the bottom of the post you were replying to:

     One suitable solution in the box is all that's needed,
     with the option for folks to turn it off if they prefer
     using any other of the infinite variety of all possible

So yeah, I don't much mind whether we call them "hooks" or "options" or even "doilies" as long as it supports the core need right out of the box, without penalizing deeply-experienced professionals with specific tool preferences.
