Well... yes. and content_filter also allows this already.
But the trick is that this utilizes other ability, probably
not what you mean when asking. For example, if you have
the above things as a commands named "spamf", "filt", "avA",
"avB", then you can use a shell script to glue them all together
in any reasonable (or unreasonable!) way you want, f.e.:
spamf $tmp || exit $EX_UNAVAILABLE
filt $tmp && exit 0
avA $tmp || exit ..
avB $tmp || exit
Well, there should be other code as well, like e.g.
cleaning up $tmp etc, but you should get the idea.
For a real example, see FILTER_README file -- with
content_INSPECTOR, just omit final sendmail call.
