After all, an inconsistently named file is generally

That's a bit of second-guessing. We are not in the business of knowing
why someone uses non-default file names. And let's not forget that a
file with a .c extension containing a GIF image is absolutely,
non-ambiguously a GIF, whatever the .c may seem to imply.

I'm just saying that extension and contents are two ways to determine
what a file is intended to be; but both aren't equally significant.
