Please help me understand the point of this...

What piece of code would be the consumer of the posted data?  After
these arbitrary filters process the posted data, what happens to it?

Normally, I would expect that the consumer provides a handler.  The
default handler doesn't know what to do with posted data (AFAIK).
There is no protocol for the default handler to provide the posted
data to a module (AFAIK).
