What about files with extensions of ".blah"?  If they contain image
data, are they misnamed?  I would expect to be safe opening a .blah
file, knowing that it's not a recognised extension, I feel safe
knowing it'll be opening in fundamental-mode.  It seems several people
on the list would rather display this .blah file as an image.
