Well, "open file", "read from file" etc are documented in the Transcript
Dictionary; and noted in the Development Guide in the same entry which
describes use of the URL scheme. They aren't linked from the URL entry in
the Transcript Dictionary (though there is a 'see also' link to "file",
which itself has 'see also' links to "open file", "read from file" etc); and
those entries themselves do each end with a tip noting the alternative of
using the URL scheme.
So perhaps it would be good if the URL entry ended with a tip noting the
alternative of using the open file et al commands; but I think it's a little
unfair to say that this syntax isn't documented in any of the Revolution
