 Looky, looky at what I found.  Now it makes sense!
 
Filtered air travels from the air filter to the breather cap.  I thought it was the other way around.

on an unsilenced air cleaner like my 69 RR, the air going to the breather wasn't filtered....there is a large gap where air rushes in to go to the breather pipe

The breather itself was a filter of sorts....if ya call a brillo pad a good filter medium
The 73 Imperial had a better idea....a real filter pad inside a disposable breather

The "brillo pad" is more like a scrubber to catch vapors and turn it into a liquid and then drip back down into the engine, otherwise the air filter would look like a soggy K&N filter. It is similar to a donkey boiler, where sea water is boiled and a vacuum is used to reduce the atmospheric pressure to make the salt water boil at temps around 155-170degrees, causing high evaporation, which then rises and collects on these brillo pads, drip into rails, and making distilled water quickly.
 
Even though the picture does show the arrow going from the air cleaner to the valve cover, it actually pulsates because of the pistons going up and down, and pressure from the rings doing slight leaking, and past the valve guides the same way.

Makes sense - except for the "filtered" part.  The port for the tube to the oil breather is outside the air intake's filter.  Some of the air getting drawn into the breather might go through the filter (maybe half), but I reckon just as much will go around it and be unfiltered.

...so 50% = 100% ??  Is that Chrysler's take on "new math"?

My take on the whole thing is it is to provide a balanced closed system rather than to filter air.

I agree with Dom. . .
 
For severe atmospheres it should be filtered.  You's be sucking all that abrasive crap into the engine
