Agreed. I've expanded the discussion of Directory structure on the
requirements page to included filenames requirements, as above. Also the
need to keep names (including period and file types) to 31 characters or
less. That doesn't guarantee total portability, but at least it covers
Unix, Windows, and Mac-like filesystems.
