Some thoughts:

1. Is it possible to set filters as buffer local?  Okay the help string
   says: "This variable may be risky if used as a file-local variable.",
   so I guess the answer is no.

2. Otherwise you could have used a lisp source block in the buffer.  You
   could still do that, just add a conditional that checks for the
   buffer name.  This way modifying a global filter would still affect
   current buffer export.

Hope this helps,
