You say "implicit" and I'll say "remove it" 8-). Really, I think we
fully agree here.

But filtering already is explicit in copy, isn't it? What you propose
looks like specifying a subset of filters to use (instead of all
filters defined previously) or am I missing something?

Anyway, filter looks more like a datatype than like a task and using
it the way you describe it looks far more natural to me.

 CM> <copy> 
 CM>   <filter refid="foobar"/> 
 CM> </copy>
