The 'bridge' man page on 1.6 and -current reads

	The bridge driver currently does not support snooping via bpf(4) or
	transparent filtering.

So does that mean you can filter on a bridge with IP addresses assigned
to the interfaces (a "non-transparent" bridge?), or does it mean that
you can't filter on a bridge at all?
