There is no harm in passing additional arguments to action/hook callbacks. Why do we force developers to explicitly ask for additional arguments to be passed? It is a maximum, and it doesn't matter if the maximum is exceeded. We can just pass all the arguments, all the time. Callbacks can use them, or ignore them. add_action() and add_filter() can lose their 4th argument.
Ran this by koopersmith and beaulebens, they couldn't find any reasons this would be a problem.
