You're right; a sufficiently advanced hook script could query the
repository for more information. Would we include an example script
which would do this data-diving or expect that to be a lesson for the
admin (I'm not being completely facetious)?

I still think that emergent behavior is more robust than an external
program which would have to retrieve information to build the template.
    We have to ask if the added freedom for the hook script outweighs
the possible complexity of the [re]implementation by each site admin.
