Lets look at it from a more pragmatic standpoint. 

 1. How many files do you have, and among those, how many start 
    with a dash?  Out of 689,691 files on my filesystem, exactly 0
    start with a dash. 

 2. How many complaints have there been from anybody that they wanted
    to add a file starting with a dash? I've seen zero "why can't I
    do this" complaints.

 3. How much time has been spent on this thread, that could have been
    invested on problems that actually measurably affect users?
