Yes, that's what I currently do as well. Still think this is 
workaround, I would prefer DK was able to handle this innately.

By the way: the functionality of your first script is already 
implemented in DK renaming tool (picture --> rename, shortcut F2). In 
your case you could just mark your files, press F2 and rename them to 

This works even if you add a number to your file (e.g. yourfile001, 
yourfile002, ...):

yourfile###    renames your files to yourfile001.JPG, yourfile002.NEF, 
yourfile003.JPG, yourfile004.NEF, ...
yourfile###[e]    only increments the number for different file 
extensions (yourfile001.JPG, yourfile001.NEF, yourfile002.JPG, 
yourfile002.NEF, ...)
