That could be done, but I don't think it would be a good idea, because
it opens a new buffer that has nothing to do with doc-view and that
could confuse users.  And IMO C-x C-f /path/to/file RET C-c C-t isn't
too hard to type.

BTW, if you only use emacs in a terminal and don't use doc-view at all,
there's a package named txutils [1] that will fit your needs better.

Bye,
