I get what you're saying, but I'm not sure I agree. It's not like I'll be
wanting to rename my files on the DAP anyway. If we know how to display
it, why not just do it without bothering the user, and let him worry about
that detail some other time?

The link between filename and filetype is a weird construct anyway.

How do the codecs handle this?
