It wasn't possible — until now. I've just committed a small patch to transliteration which stores the original/unaltered filename in $_FILES['files']['orig_name'][<field_name>]. This information can then be accessed by other modules that wish to make use of it.

For demonstration purposes I've written a small module which fulfills what you asked for: it integrates with filefield and sets the description text to the original filename for newly uploaded files.
