Mention new filtering mechanisms in AutoProvidesAndRequiresFiltering

rpm 4.9.0 has new (and I presume better) mechanisms for filtering dependencies. My understanding is that these don't suffer from the problems our existing macros have with respect to disabling the internal dependency generator and the issues surrounding that.
However, I can't find any documentation at all on this besides this message: http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/devel/2011-February/148317.html
Since F15 has a sufficiently new RPM, it may be worth mentioning these on https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:AutoProvidesAndRequiresFiltering
It also occurs to me that at least %perl_default_filter could be updated in F15+ to use the new-style stuff.
