May the instance node referenced by upload contain initial data?

More importantly,
may the instance node referenced by upload/filename contain an initial
filename (for example when editing a record may it hold the 'current'

And if a default filename is allowed should this file be uploaded even
though the user has not actually picked a file for upload? (guess not)

The HTML 4.01 spec allows input[@type='file'] to contain a value attribute
holding a default filename. But I have only seen this implemented in
Opera (for security reasons I guess).
