With default filters, yeah... it's useless.  With Textile2, it is of  
more use, because Textile2 is much more of a CPU/memory hog than our  
lean 'n mean wpautop and wptexturize.  So, not really of use for  
default, but if you're adding a whole bunch of third party regex,  
preprocessing might eventually benefit you.  Of course, pick your  
battles, this shouldn't be your first optimization.
