Sure, but the filter extension uses them, which is where they come
from. They aren't of my own creation, and I cannot assume that the
values assigned to them won't change in the future, so can't hardcode
my way around them.

I don't have anything against side-wide constants myself (no worse
than an array shoved into $GLOBALS) but PHP seems to be moving more
and more towards the use of constants within extensions as function
parameters, PDO being another popular culprit that springs to mind.
