No, the web works with URIs and HTTP Content-Type headers, file name
extensions do not matter on the web and in fact, cool URIs don't have
file name extensions within. File name extensions are part of MIME Type
registration, conflicts arise if no MIME Types are registered, and there
are lots of types that have no MIME Type or use unregistered ones, like
JavaScript for example.
