I do it all the time.  Windows has a well defined default protocol for
accessing remote files on named hosts, and such URLs mostly work (they
even used to work on Emacs IIRC until url-handler came along and started
forcing them over to FTP).

GNOME, KDE and others may also have mechanisms for dealing with remote
file URLs that we could use.
