Wide-area filesystems allow it. Depends on the software used ...

Whilst I've not used it myself, I've seen references to file scheme URLs
which use a hostname in conjunction with AFS.

So, what assumptions do you make about the underlying FS?

Although a quick Google search turned up this:
which mentions mapping to a canonical form using localhost. Since it
looks like that's 1994, you might be able to now get away with only
supporting localhost. *shrugs*
