That's exactly what Nautilus is doing. You should file a bug (upstream)
for AbiWord or GnuMeric. Since they probably use gnome-vfs* functions to
access files, they might as well support URI's and not just local path.

But, they might have reasons why that has not been implemented (yet)...
And if you know how to code, submitting a patch instead of a bug report
would be a lot better. IMHO.
