I am he, but Stefan has it right anyway. It was just a cosmetic
change, in response to bug report "outline mode doesn't call
outline-mode-hook as promised (patch)" (Jul 16 2003). Without it, when
one read the docstring for a mode defined with define-derived-mode it
referenced a hook that did not seem to be defined.
