Default Can a Macintosh person tell us how to change the name of a file?

If we're talking about choosing a program to open a file, extenions
aren't needed. It would be easy to ensure that Open With offers only
programs that can open a given file without reference to an extension.
Just standardise metadata (eg, as a series of slots, some which must be
filled, others for dev or user options). Easy peasy.


Yeah, creating a new standard and getting every file to comply with it
is super simple. Why, it happens every day!
