I don't think so. It's not clear from the discussion (Eli & Michael vs you) that
any consensus has been reached about what should be in `file-remote-p' (vs
elsewhere). And you're not interested in adding the NET USE part to
`file-remote-p' in the meantime.

I've expressed a need for something (`file-remote-p' or something else; I don't
care) that quickly distinguishes, based on the file name and only local info,
whether the file named is likely to be slow to access or fast.

I'll let it go at that. I hope you will eventually come to agreement on where to
do that, and I hope that someone with knowledge of how to do that does it.
