That case seems maybe like overkill because the mechanism and other context is typically available in c$proto which people can inspect in the FAF events, but the part that's missing is a consistent and protocol independent way of determining the direction that the file is going.  As long as they have that, any other context that's available at the time of the FAF event becomes usable.

Seems fine for now.  Will add unless there's other thoughts.
