Google told they will be more transparent but ok they do talk a lot, but it would be great to know what filter has hit a site. This could benefit the google results, be cause many are hit, but still have great content to offer. So a note on WMT that a site is influenced by this filter would be great, will we see this in near future.

There are a lot of site owners who don't use webmaster tools at all and never have, so Google has no practical way to notify them about anything. It wouldn't be fair to them if Google were to notify site owners who do use webmaster tools about penalties. But Google is already doing this anyway in some cases, thus already being unfair.
