You may be right, in which case one can be filtering and then suddenly lane splitting without actually doing anything differently. That makes it pretty tricky if one is legal and one is not, when the legality is determined by the behavior of someone else. For example, if I am filtering and one of the cars decides to edge forward to get closer to the car ahead of it, am I suddenly lane splitting? And then filtering again once they stop?
Yes. And yes. Though with three foot passing rules, I think it would be the car that would be in the wrong in that isutation.

But really, I was just referring to the nomenclature.
