You may be a little confused.  Subrquests and internal redirects
are not the same thing, and serve different purposes.  Maybe the
book, which discusses them in consecutive sections in the chapter
on the request processing cycle, should be clearer.

A subrequest should be OK in a filter, but if it generates any output
you'd need to figure out where to send it - which is not obvious in
an input filter.  As for an internal redirect, I don't see how it would
make sense, but I haven't tried.

BTW, this would be better on the modules-dev list.
