Indeed, reliably though? for instance taking in to account the file 
being sent by email, being part of a zip archive, being in the message 
body of a PUT HTTP request, being in the body of a GET HTTP response 
with a Content-Location which differs from the effective request URI?

Personally, I'd quite like that can of worms left closed for RDF-Triples :)
