Because when you create multiple images with gfont, you have to specify
a unique file name for each string. With other include files (logo,
imgbg, imgdot) the situation is different. I see no reason to have
file1.logo-wml.gif file2.logo-wml.gif file3.logo-wml.gif ...
because all these files are identical, so why not just "logo-wml.gif" ?

So i think the current implementation of these include files is wrong.
