Thanks Florian, this list is very helpful.  Just one comment:

Actually, add-function is likely to become more common with new hooks
using a `*-function' variable modified via add-function rather than
a `*-functions' modified via add-hook.

Somewhat relatedly, would you consider renaming advice-add to
add-advice (naturally with an alias for backward compatibility)?
It's easier to discover related functionality through tab
completion, apropos, etc. when its names share a common structure.
For example if I was looking for basename functionality and I knew
about file-name-directory, `C-h f file-name- TAB' would lead me to
`file-name-nondirectory' straightaway.
