No, you are not missing anything. The magics and other "system" stuff
are currently not implemented through the hook system, and that's one
of the reasons I hoped your cleanup scheme would "harmonize" the
'built-in' prefilters (actually, I'm not sure I even like the idea of
built in prefilter too much) with the hooks system. In the meantime,
you can easily convert %foo to _ip.magic("foo") if you want, to get
the magics working.
