Gerhard, I'm sure you recognize this... There's nothing "dumb" in not linking 
the filter cache to nodes.  Filters apply to other objects, like blocks, and 
AFAIK there's no hook_blockapi() to tell the filter cache when a block gets 
deleted, updated, etc... 

I'm just pointing that this is not simply an oversight.
