Why is the user not redirected to the login page in order to be able to view a filter?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Field or Filter does not exist or you do not have permission to view it

Why is the user not redirected to the login page in order to be able to view a filter?

We have the case that users receive a link to a filter, but are unable to view the filter just because they are not logged in to JIRA. But they don't see the real reason behind the displayed error message, which only refers to a missing field or permission. The error message is misleading.
