I think that for things like manual installation, &c, it would be
reasonable for dpkg to lend a helping hand - it would be ridiculously
easy to do. I'll probably implement it sometime just for light relief
However, in general it seems to me that perhaps the best thing for the
`hook' idea would be for the sysadmin to run a wrapper around dpkg,
which would do the things they wanted. It could use dpkg --list or
--status to find out what it needed to know.
