Why not, but you already can do this, even if it's a little tricky:

add_filter( 'wp_redirect', 'logout_redirect_filter' );
function logout_redirect_filter( $location ) {
	if ( isset( $_REQUEST['action'], $_REQUEST['redirect_to'] ) && 'logout' == $_REQUEST['action'] ) {
		$location = home_url( '/my-own-url/' );
	return $location;

I don't really have a problem with this, though I wonder if perhaps we should pass both the original value of redirect_to as well as the derived fallback, just as we do in the login_redirect filter.

Good point.

27617.2.patch passes the original 'redirect_to' value as well.
