It does already.  See (info "(elisp) Multi-file Packages"):

       If the multi-file package contains auxiliary data files (such as
    images), the package's Lisp code can refer to these files via the
    variable `load-file-name' (*note Loading::).  Here is an example:

         (defconst superfrobnicator-base (file-name-directory load-file-name))

         (defun superfrobnicator-fetch-image (file)
           (expand-file-name file superfrobnicator-base))
