I'm pretty sure this is not the case anymore. The defaults in  
content.module handle loads, inserts, updates and deletes in nearly  
all cases now, so a field really just has to declare its DB columns,  
how to present the edit form to the user (i.e. a widget), any  
validation necessary, and display. That's about half the hooks that  
were previously necessary.
