Why doesn't the sdk call build-service on hooks

When you exectute the build-service ant target in the root of the sdk
It only builds services for portlet and webs modules
Here's an excerpt from the build.xml file that shows this behaviour
<ant dir="portlets" target="build-service" inheritAll="false" />
<ant dir="webs" target="build-service" inheritAll="false" />
Can someone explain why this is ?
Is this an oversight on the part of liferay or is it a bad practice to define a service in for instance a hook ?
What we did is, define a model listener in hook, that writes some events to the databasse via a service generated by service builder. That seems like a reasonable use case to me
