An element that could mark up filenames would be helpful. They're usually marked
up in one way or another for styling (in italics, monospace, etc.).

Also, if an 'mri' element were added, it should have an attribute mentioning
the type--whether it is an 'email' address, a formal 'uri', an 'fpi', the
full 'path' to a file, or simply a 'filename'.
