Of course.
Let me explain in more details what I meant:

I think that two things, could clarify the picture to filter
programmers, if these things were added to the documentation:

1. A map of the current order of built-in filters (including all the
   optional filters that are not activated per any request, like SSI).

2. Rules to ensure that the filter you add, will be the first/last in
   the specific AP_FTYPE that you chose. For example: Don't use
   register_hooks, but XXXX. Or: Use AP_FTYPE_XXX [+-] 1. Etc. I know
   that the examples for rules that I quoted here, are controversial.
   But there must be rules. If not these ones, then others.
