Is it the case that the modes that do run prog-mode-hook are exactly the modes derived from prog-mode?

+1.

But: these -> those,
     runnuing -> running,
     and we can drop the comma before "prior".

And I'm not sure why we need to or should say "(including...)".  Why?

I'd suggest just this:

  many programming language modes run `prog-mode-hook' before
  running their own mode hooks

Or even "some" instead of "many".  What does it matter how
many do this?
