Yep. Filenames are a great way of doing that on the server. It's not always
the best way (depending on other requirements) but often it is.

However, once you're away from the server, and on the web there are no
filenames. (Suggested filenames can be given in Content-Disposition headers,
but it's not obligatory for servers to use them, indeed it's often
impossible or insecure to do so).
