 Hi @eventualo,

 Apologies that it took so long to receive a proper response on this one!

 While I don't necessarily agree with the suggestions for allowed values of
 `$args['back_link']`, I think it's reasonable to allow `$args` to be
 filtered before calling the desired die handler.

 I'm attaching a patch to introduce a filter hook for doing just that.

 One note for `history.back()` is that depending on the browser and how the
 relevant settings are configured based on user preference, form values
 ''may''  be preserved. If referrer is used, this would not be the case.
