yes, I understood your question correctly. But since there was now
committed a patch (with 5 hooks and their respective priority), you
can guess that there was some 'making up the mind'. This actually happened
at the netfilter developer workshop and we agreed upon the same priority
as used up to now.
Result: If anybody needs a table attached before connection tracking, he
will have to introduce a new table. There's no problem with that, and
it won't hurt anybody else.

As stated above, those plans are buried now.
