I think so.

Not in terms of a specific list, no, but I have given the hook names,
noted that there is a pre and post for each hook and specified the
name format for the directories.

...Ok, the wiki now contains a _complete_, _explicit_ list of valid
hooks and the corresponding directories.

Again, the grouping isn't important in any way other than the type of
argument passed.  Batch hooks get a file name, per-package hooks get a
package name.  Other than that, they all live happily in
/etc/opt/csw/pkg-hooks.  For reference, in case it's still not clear,
these directories would be:

/etc/opt/csw/pkg-hooks/preupdate .d/

I have also noted on the wiki that the only difference between batch
and per-package is the argument type.
