Out of scope, I'd say.  file: URL's are a monster pain in the ass, 
especialy given Microsoft Operating System ideas about case-mapping...
I suspect that file: urls will only ever be useful in a local authoring
environment... if you want to ship a multi-part chunk, relative URLs
are way safer and have a chance of working correctly if you can just
get to the document entity. -Tim
