I looked at the filters, e.g. o.a.c.db.filter.SliceQueryFilter, and it
seems like one place to put predicate logic is in that hierarchy.
Perhaps there can be a PredicateQueryFilter.  Some thought has
apparently already gone into flexible filters at the storage level.  I
hope something happens in this direction but I won't push for it
further since it's not what I need.

The attached patch is how I propose to do bitmasks inside the
SlicePredicate.  As you suggested, it solves the specific problem.  It's
pretty simple and carries no performance penalty if bitmasks are not
used.  It's untested, intended to show the interface and approach I am
proposing.  I didn't open an issue since it's unclear that this is the
way to go.
