Why would you want to use nonstandard file extensions.  That is scarey.   I 
also want the file extensions to be associated with its program that created 
it.  

Not sure if I am understanding this thread of extensions but I want to see DXP 
in print,  DXB in braille and I want to be able to choose in a drop box All 
Files if i want.   I believe 10.4 is already doing this.

No! Some of us use non-standard extensions and would hate to see them 
disappear from the File Open list.
