I believe it has more to do with mod_proxy than the filter design.  No one, 
at the time we added AddOutputFilterByType, wanted to rewrite mod_proxy to 
be knowledgeable about filters.

Ultimately, all that is needed is a call to ap_set_content_type() before 
any bytes are written to the client to get AddOutputFilterByType to work. 
Perhaps with the recent momentum behind mod_proxy work, someone could 
investigate that and get mod_proxy fixed.  -- justin
