The fact that Gnus makes buffers named nn.a7 does not mean there
cannot be a file or buffer by that name that has nothing to do with
Gnus.  Likewise, there can legitimately be a file or buffer named
literally "(ftp)".

If these are names of buffers that many users would like to omit, we
can make them one of the choices we offer, but I don't think we should
make them the default.

Also, I think desktop.el should check that buffers mentioned in
desktop-buffers-not-to-save don't have an associated file.  Files
should be mentioned in desktop-files-not-to-save.

Done.

Only mostly so.  They can be regular files as well.

Why not?  If they exist on the remote host, I think it can.
