I want to be sure I fully grasp the problem completely...

You say that opening an Org file requires first `ob-lob' before *providing*
`org', right? [1]

IIUC, here are all the steps involved:

1. an Org file is opened
2. org.el is required -- but not yet provided at all, so loaded a first time
3. when loading it, it requires first extra packages; among others (via some
   call tree), ob-lob.el -- see [1]
4. ob-lob.el is then loaded, and in fine provided
5. eval-after-load "ob-lob" is run straight away, and tries to open an Org file
6. org.el is hence required -- but it still is not yet provided, so loaded a
   second time
7. at some point, org.el is provided for real
8. Eval-after-load "org" is run a first time, so are hooks
9. Eval-after-load "org" is run a second time, as the file has been loaded

IOW, isn't the problem that the `eval-after-load' is RUN AFTER EACH `provide' of
some lib, not after the FIRST `provide' of that lib?

It seems to me that such call trees can't be managed properly otherwise (I
mean, with the current rule: a lot of code may be run multiple times, while
only logically scheduled once).

Best regards,

[1] I can't following the full library "call tree":

  org -> ??? -> ob -> ob-lob
