I think if the only need is to expose hooks, to this permissions.
Then you can go to Feature Requests | Expo and add a new request.
I think this request will be helpful, since I’m gonna use in a project when done.
You can create your own hook style, see this example for camera permission
There have been significant changes in the form of permissions.
There is a tendency for each module to have only the code for that feature.
Camera, GPS, Documents, Wifi, etc…
So, if you need to change something in the module gps, it has no impact with camera, wifi. etc…
The size diff was just to make a point, about why they are doing it, and the benefits.
