Isn't the Files directive was a pretty elegant way to accomplish the same
thing w/o adding new directives?  All you need is to associate a set of
filters (and a load order) with a particular mime type/file extension (which
for our purposes are synonymous).  The Files directive seemed to enable that
quite nicely unless I am missing some function that your proposal enables that
you cannot do today.
