I have taken a look at this, and it was what I expected. 

check_markup() is good if you want to call it in total isolation, ie so
what is contained within the content don't really need to know where it
is being called from.

In the case of a node with php content you can generally work out what
the node is and do a node load to get the data. By this is really a
little inefficient, because before calling the check_markup() from
node_prepare() we already have the node object, so it would be nice if
you can have the $node as a local variable so that you can use it.

Also with the filters it would be nice if they can be more content type
oriented. I would like to be able to classify filters so that they only
get used on certain types of content. So the current filters would be
considered a global filters and would appear on everything, but for
E-Commerce I could create a transaction filter class and this will only
be display on the emails that are sent from ecommerce, and not in other
areas like nodes. 

Also when the filters are getting run we would be able to pass through a
an array of variables which can be used by the filters.

I think that I have my 4.8 project.

What do people think.

Thanks in advance.
