Well would you on your local filesystem name PNG files with a .BMP extension 
and then add a mimetype that treats them as a PNG file? Not a great example 
as the mimetypes would do the same thing, but HTML files IMHO should be 
static HTML where PHP files are PHP scripts.

I proposed a solution that would alleviate that problem so that's a moot point 
and Rob has already provided the code...
