The fact is, that we have different possibilities to use hooks. The
interface method is one of them we have to deal with since it's in the
Core. However, and here I agree, there was not discussion or approval to
define a rule like "only use hooks with interface in future".

However, bashing and devaluing others is not the kind of discussion that
brings us one step forward. If we want to find a conclusion, we should
stick to the facts and to the pros and cons.
