In that case, could we add the "should" part (or something similar) to
the manual (in addition to the doc string reference you describe)? It is
true that careful reading of the manual and the relevant doc strings as
they are now could suffice to make an informed decision on when
`inhibit-modification-hooks' is (in)appropriate, but I think having some
kind of explicit heads-up or dissuation regarding the likely misuse
would be better.
