In the template language documentation, there is an example where the length filter is used in an if tag where a list's length is compared to 1. It starts with "You can also use filters and various operators in the if tag..."
Since the filter returns a string and the comparison will be a string comparison, this basically works in the example but anything more complicated is likely to fail. I think it would be helpful if a caveat was written into this example that made this clear.
