Who says it should? If that syntax is not defined (and documented), it
shouldn't work.

As you noticed, you can help yourself with a filter which does nothing.
For video, "null" comes to mind, for audio "anull":

Your "scale" may alright, but I would probably choose
"scale=w=iw:h=ih", as not to risk "scale" doing anything. (Scale can
also do other stuff, so I would rather not use it to do "nothing".)

Sure, but that's not how it's defined. Two [][] next to each other
could be two inputs or two outputs as well.

What was the problem with attaching 11 kB here?

Little. You could open a feature request on trac.
