Question: how do other applications deal with such situations ?

I mean, of course Emacs should do better than the rest of the crowd,
but if most/all other applications fail miserably, then it's unlikely
that people will use such setups and it would be wrong for Emacs to
make it easier to create such a setup (unless maybe only Emacs
will ever care about those file names, of course).
