do you mean this should be done (muxing) with a message or not done at all ?
if the bitstream filter returns an error, it shouldn't have touched the
data IMHO, so we would mux input data unchanged
(I'll have to have a look at current bitstream filters to know what they
do, though)

today, if a bitstream filter returns an error, ffmpeg will abort because
of using a packet that is freed.
