URLs in saved documents

Apropos of nothing in particular...

It would be nice if WWW browsers gave you the option of including the
URLs of hyperlinks in the saved versions of HTML documents (perhaps
some do already?). For instance, an easy way of doing this would be

<A HREF="http://www.acme.com/">Acme Widgets, Inc</A>

to become

Acme Widgets, Inc <URL:http://www.acme.com/>

in a saved (say) text or PostScript version of the document. There
are probably quite a few more, and fancier, ways of doing this - like
footnotes, or an automagically generated list of references at the
end of the document ?

Just a thought :-)
