Additional Data saving

#1
I've added some extrafields to some forms.

What's the best way, to save the data with the datamanger?

Wouldn't it be good to have a event listener before, which sends $userInput $this->_input as reference, so we can add the own fields?
$writer->bulkSet($userInput);
Admincontroller_user
PHP:
/**
  * Inserts a new user or updates an existing one.
  *
  * @return XenForo_ControllerResponse_Abstract
  */
 public function actionSave()
 {
  $this->_assertPostOnly();
  $userId = $this->_input->filterSingle('user_id', XenForo_Input::UINT);
  if ($userId)
  {
   $user = $this->_getUserOrError($userId);
   $this->getHelper('Admin')->checkSuperAdminEdit($user);
  }
  $userInput = $this->_input->filter(array(
   // essentials
