It's possible, but I think that sounds...  very ambitious.  But I could
see the case for saying something general like "customising hook
variables should happen before loading .emacs, because that will make
add-hook work", but even that would be controversial.  (Customising a
hook sets the variable to a specific value; it doesn't add functions.)
