I've noticed that myself. But I think it's actually quite good it doesn't.
Most HTTP clients have a hard time dealing with HTTP as is.
Confusing them with Transfer-Encoding and similar things, while confusing
them with Errors -- that just might be too much.

Now, this is my experience (and speculation) using mod_filter+mod_deflate.
What's your use-case? What's your config? And why do you think you need
filters applied on Errors as well?

Finally, if someone of the Devs is spying, can you explain the reason
behind this reasoning?
