When I originally implemented filters, the concept was, that everything
should pass through the filter process. 

A filter that relies on some data bypassing the filter, is a bad filter and
should be fixed, IMO.

Filter syntax and semantics are horribly complex, and possibly got quite
broken over time. I haven't used any recently.
