The HeaderIn stuff was originally a feature request for mod_proxy, where
people could modify headers on requests to backend servers. Fiddling
with headers is the job of mod_headers, which is why that was where the
modification was made.

Lack of support for input filters is a bug - down the line there will be
more applications for input filters that we haven't foreseen yet - I
vote it be fixed.
