These interfaces provide filter/converter instances to be installed in server/hotrod, but we expect users to provide implementations of such classes and plug the server with them.

With this in mind, core/ might be the best place for it. They cannot live in commons/ cos it’d would require to move KeyValueFilter/Converter and other dependant classes to commons.
IMO, this is the best solution. I don't think a user should bring all 
the core/ (and probably its dependencies) to implement a couple of
