I don't think I ever suggested "implementing email/xmpp/whatever support into the Enforcer and/or Signer" - Depending on what the hooks are then they should go wherever is most appropriate. My issue is with just creating hooks. Adding just hooks does nothing to help users of what is supposed to be push button system. We should develop a set of useful and easy to configure scripts to access the hooks and perform the useful activity: be that email, xmpp or whatever the users request. Of course, if users want to contribute scripts that is great.
