[Since I was asked to comment] I personally can't think of any objections to this, however I think this is more a call for ops.
However, faidon in the other bug seems to have objected to copying files via http for internal requests, so if his objection still stands, this is a moot point.
I'm not sure it would need a url-downloader configuration change anyway? I thought anything within our own range can be requested directly? eg: gerrit.wikimedia.org doesn't need proxying
Works for me: https://test.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Shellfish_COPY_UPLOAD_TEST.jpg
Incidentally, why is the image appearing in the body of the file description page? Some weird config option must be turned on for testwiki...
For the record, though, this can't really be used for a general-purpose commons transfer tool, because it requires the user to have upload-by-url rights on commons, which is restricted to sysops and GLAM people.
Does it need report a issue that the image appearing in the body of the file description page?
