Note gnome shell has the "paste filenames" feature, when you've selected and
copied file(s) in the nautilus browser, though is a little awkward to access.
You can use right click in gnome terminal to access the menu,
or (with the menu bar enabled) Alt+e f <return>.
There doesn't seem to be a way to assign a shortcut to this function.
I'd log a feature request to do that with the gnome folks,
as that would be a simple and relatively safe way to achieve what you want.

I'm not sure coreutils could support file:// directly
due to the clash with a network file server named 'file' or a directory named 

I see that xdg-open supports file:// urls though that's quite a specialised 

It's also worth noting the recent proposal to have ls output clickable links
which could use file:// resulting in gnome terminal opening the default
application when the file links were ctrl clicked.
