Probably not a feature. The other two are still possible.

Here is the code running on Linux:

bradh at squirt Python-2.3a1 $ ./python test-importhooks-2.py
2.3a1 (#1, Jan  2 2003, 19:17:08)
[GCC 2.95.3 20010315 (release)]
Wahey!
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "test-importhooks-2.py", line 12, in ?
    import nothing  # needless to say, doesn't exist
ImportError: No module named nothing

One thing you might like to try: adding a flush() to make sure that the 
routine really Isn't being called.
Try this version of f() instead:

def f(path):
    print "Wahey!", path
    sys.stdout.flush()
    raise ImportError
