That is my concern too, a filter updates or blocks the request and
keeping the filter spec as simple as possible is a way to go IMHO as
opposed to designing the filter api around something that will allow the
filters assume the role of endpoints doing the actual job...And even if
filters will do be able to do then it would need to be managed
internally, possibly with the help of FilterContext
