tabulated-list-revert runs hook before re-printing the table

tabulated-list-mode implements a custom `revert-buffer-function' named 
`tabulated-list-revert', which does not run the standard `after-revert-hook` 
function as far as I can see.

Instead, it has its own hook `tabulated-list-revert-hook', but this hook runs 
*before* the list is re-printed with `tabulated-list-print'.

Hence, the hook still works on the “old” list, before it is updated.

What is the rationale for this?  When does the hook make sense in its current 

Wouldn't it be rather more useful to run the hook *after* re-printing the error 
list, so that the hook can work with the newly refreshed list?

My use case was to automatically resize a custom tabulated-list-mode to fit its 
contents after every update.  Currently that doesn't seem possible…

Thank you
