You can do it today! Just name your include files *.lyi and use

\include "myfile.lyi"

Thus, there's absolutely no reason to change anything in the
implementation of LilyPond. The only possible issue to discuss
is if we should use this convention in the example in the manual.
I have a similar favourite convention, namely to always use the
suffix .lytex for latex documents to be input to lilypond-book.

Wouldn't it be a good idea, before 2.0 to change the file extension convensions so that you could distinguish files to be compiled from files to be included? It would be nice to be able to do something like "lilypond *.ly" without getting errors about include-files.
(.lyi would be a natural extension, but I am open for suggestions)
