Or, from another direction: all the filters can be conceptually thought of as just rendering the subject to a bitmap and then fiddling with the pixels.  To have >100% opacity work, you'd need to allow the alpha channel of the pixels to be an unbounded value, which is very inconsistent with current models of pixel color.
