What do you mean? The directive can arrive over multiple (not single!) calls
to the filter. We can put a set-aside brigade into the context, or we can
alloc the buffer once and put it there (and copy stuff onto the end). It is
more efficient to copy from the brigade into the buffer, than to copy during
a set-aside, then copy again into a buffer.

Well, we need to see the grammar to determine the bound. At a minimum, the
tags are bounded and I would guess certain arguments/tokens are bounded;
these can/should use a buffer to hold them during parsing.
