Because logging happens after request processing is completed,
and a filter affects only what happens "inside" the filter in the
request handling chain.

The filter wraps request, but log valve sees the original unwrapped request.

If you need to pass this information to the log valve, I'd suggest you
to assign it to a request attribute.
