Yes, we could allow to set a geometry type and skip all features with a
different geometry type or better return an empty geometry instead - to get the
feature count right.

Or we could extent the layers to have three renderers - one for each geometry
type.  We recently added NoGeometry - so I figure we know where to look now.
That way we could also get rid of that PostGIS filter trick (ugly because you
could remove the filtering subset string).
