This is exactly what I've been struggling with in apreq.
I think the only sane thing apreq can do is to assume that
subrequests will never have bodies attached (so no POST data
will ever be available to a subrequest via apreq).  I think
this is the original intent, and that the input filter cloning
is just there to prevent segfaults (e.g. the subrequest might 
install new filters for itself).
