I agree with your last sentence, but i'm not sure there is a real
problem. Smart browsers should allow the user to customize how
to render certain mime-types (but i don't know whether they do).

Anyway, i will not change the name of WML modules, not to break
compatibility. But you can change your template and input file
suffixes ; if this breaks something, be sure i will fix WML.
