    In this case, it shouldn't be possible to accidently change the
    buffer.  It happens quite often that I inadvertently change a file
    name in the buffer (most of the time by pressing "f"), and using undo
    before pressing RET is necessary in such cases.

The buffer could be made read-only, and the filter could bind
inhibit-read-only to t in order to write in it.

Do people see cases where that would cause trouble?
