This is basically not possible, browsers typically do not send Referer
headers if the files are on the local disk and even if they did, there
is no way for the validator to retrieve files on your hard drive if it
cannot retrieve them via some protocol such as HTTP or FTP and if it 
can do that, the file would no longer be "local".
