AFAICT, the main problem with what you are proposing is that killing
or copying text (C-w, M-w etc) doesn't keep any record of where the
text came from.
Determining the name of a given buffer is trivial, as is determining
its associated filename (if it has one). The tricky part is
determining exactly *which* buffer you are interested in.
