pre/post db-create and pre db-init cannot, in my opinion, be hooks.
Hooks requires that most if not all the application is loaded.

And when not even the database is created, or the tables initialised, it
can cause difficulties.

Simple scripts, like precreate (but with a different name of couse)
would be safer.

For the particular case of extension creation, I would see some script
like migration/pre-db-init.py, which would be applied before any entity
or relation of a cube is added to the active schema.
