Thats understandable. 2 things:
a.) http://pad.lv/1023179 is a bug that somewhat covers this. The idea
would be that you could do
Althoug Its not htat useful when you're wanting to insert something at
the beginning of that list.
b.) within a stable release, we aren't going to change the default list on
a whim. We did insert one and SRU it for the apt-disable-pipelining issue
to allow usage of S3 mirrors. I hadn't considered this negative affect.
We tried to announce that change as widely as possible.
But anyway, within a stable release, that list isn't really going to
change. Thats why they're called "Stable". So for 5 years, you can use
that user-data on 12.04. If you move your base to 12.10, you should
re-check the modules.
I dont' have a better solution than that for you without thinking more.
