Using a hook or a filter requires to write a function in most cases.
I don't think that a person able to write such a function would cringe
in front of a function of three arguments (you don't even have to use
them all).

Filters are applied on something (often a string). That something is the
first argument. Also, filters are probably very dependant on the
back-end used. That is the second argument. Eventually, it may be useful
to know which options were active at the time of export. This is the
third argument.

I can remove the last argument, bringing down the sum of arguments to 2.
Should I?
