Yes, this works:

(setq-default mode-line-format
              '(:eval (abbreviate-file-name (buffer-file-name))))

Now it will be interesting to see how much work is
required to make it work the right way for dired and
sudo buffers, not to mention all the "file-less"
modes...

On the bright side, `abbreviate-file-name' I can
probably also use to clean up the code I just posted,
that of killing the path!
