That would be wrong.  The only difference between a transfer coding
filter for deflate and a content coding filter for deflate is when
and where in the chain the filter is inserted.  It is always possible
for the server to be misconfigured, causing filters to be inserted in
the wrong order: the result will be garbage.  We don't need to
prevent people from implementing garbage.
