Which functionality? to load a file whose name is fixed in the
sources? because if it isn't fixed, you'd have to prepare the feature
anyway, so it isn't different from binding a key to a function.

Having a fixed file name in Emacs that is loaded by an external signal
would be a terrible security risk, no?
