Opposed. The name is an opaque identifier, not intended for direct extraction. 
Prohibiting "mangling" will cause two non-identical files with the same name 
(e.g. from different directories) to be prohibited by the application (or in 
the brain-dead case, second entry gets added and cause unexpected behaviour).

Opposed. Not required - applications can figure out what the correct handling 
is from normal auto-detection (consider that graphics work already). Why make 
it more complex when not necessary? 

I could live with MIME type being included as an optional parameter.
