Probably .doc is not a good extension these days.

I assume there was a reason why that wasn't done to start with.
Enriched mode is a minor mode, not a major mode.
I guess the idea is that you can use it with whatever major mode you
prefer (though I guess it would always be text mode in practice).

I think just using .txt for the example file would be better than making
up a new extension.

But it seems to me that it should work better than it does now even if
you use a .doc extension.
