I have no idea: I was mainly interested in how to make org-exp-blocks to
work (for some value of "work") and although I looked at the HTML, I didn't
check it.

That may very well be true.

Well, I don't mind a plethora of hooks: they enable things that wouldn't
be possible otherwise (and they are even documented and easily findable
because of uniform naming: either the M-x org--hook trick which works
because of the uniform naming [fn:1] or the Worg (?)  page that Carsten
pointed to some time ago[fn:2]).

As for org-exp-blocks, two out of the three areas of its application, as
discussed in the commentary, are deprecated: only comment remains. But
contrary to your (tongue-in-cheek) remark, Eric Schulte seems to be
single-handedly responsible for all of the block stuff :-)



[fn:1] Note to future maintainers: don't ever name a hook anything other than
org-foo-bar-hook or else :-)

[fn:2] I prefer the first to the second because I can do it right in emacs: no
need to go look up URLs and use inferior tools.
