What am I missing? 

It seems like you want your derived backend to transcode special blocks somewhat differently than the parent backend. And adding a special block export filter doesn't quite do the job.

For that purpose, you should write a special block transcoder - perhaps falling back to the parent backend for block types you do not wish to handle as described above.

Block specific customizations could rely on a backend specific attribute.
