Yep. Nice idea. Expanded version:

  (defun copy-current-filename-as-kill ()
    (interactive)
    (let ((filename (or buffer-file-name
                        dired-directory)))
      (kill-new
       (or (and filename
                (expand-file-name filename))
           ""))))

Just extend the (or ...) to taste for more cases :-)
