the removal of the mentioned hook has been anounced as breaking change with issue #82426
see https://docs.typo3.org/typo3cms/extensions/core/Changelog/9.0/Breaking-82426-ExtJSAndExtDirectRemoval.html for the related documentation.
breaking changes sometimes need to happen and as you know it is tried to have those as less as possible. I would propose to create a new issue to propose additional hooks, is that ok?

The removal of the hooks was done with no regard to the TYPO3 core development policy, which clearly states: TYPO3 core development policy states that public API will not be changed without a grace period where extension authors can adapt to the changes. In that grace period a deprecation warning will be thrown. If you want to remove or change functionality in the TYPO3 core, it has to be deprecated first.
Since they are hooks, they are part of the public API of TYPO3.
The new classes for the page tree are declared @internal, which means they are not part of the public API. This means it makes no sense to add a hook or signal to it. @internal means no information should be displayed in public documentation.
Nevertheless, I will have a look if I can propose new signals or hooks
