Multiple ::afters has been discussed before. It's been rejected only for lack of strong use-cases; it's not seen as anything bad.

I... don't think it's defensible to claim that the mentioned technique isn't a hack? It's abusing two completely  unrelated abilities to achieve a third unrelated thing, and has a number of arbitrary limitations/drawbacks, not intrinsically linked to the thing being achieved, as a result.  That's more or less the definition of a hack.
