Description

Reading the enable-event man pages, one can get the impression that filters have the same relation with context that they have with the event's payload fields: one could expect them to fail (and thus exclude events) if the context fields they use have not been added to the channel.

That is not the case: filters have global access to the context, and the add-context command acts quite independently of event filtering.
