If you have not yet read the mega threads from a year or two back over on the sks mailing list discussing how filtering is incompatible with open synchronisation, I suggest you do so before opining further. I really don’t have the energy to explain it again! ;-) tl;dr: if you don’t have either a central authority or an agreed, future-proof zkp system of verification (itself a Very Hard Problem) then your decentralised network goes split brain at the slightest provocation. 



I’d also suggest reading DKG’s proposals for what *is* technically possible, as they are pretty comprehensive: 


Finally, I would suggest continuing any technical discussions on sks-devel rather than here as we are veering off topic.
