[ZWeb] DISCUSS: Use ".html" or not?

Howdy. Let's start a war. :^)
I'm about to create the site map page, which is the second link on the
navbar. It will help us plan the building out of the content and
section space in the site.
My first decision to make is: what kind of object should this be? I'm
going to make it a Document and treat it as content, rather than
programming, so that it shows up in searches. Of course, this might
come back to haunt me later if I need to put any programming in it.
My second decision: what should the object id be? Choices:
While this seems like a petty conversation, it is actually quite
important. We have two kinds of decisions to make:
1) Caps scheme. If I can get away with it, I'd like to make an edict to
banish caps and use all lower. I've grown really, really, really weary
over the years telling people the URL to the zope 3 wiki, and saying
"Component architecutre, capital C and capital A, front page, capital f
and capital p, ..."
2) Extensions. Boy oh boy is this a hot potato.
The first two people that tried to help me with nzo skins via WebDAV
wanted to use Dreamweaver. The were both foiled by DW's inability to
work with something not having an extension. Ultimately, all solutions
that we discussed had tough tradeoffs.
For both content and presentation objects, this is going to come up over
and over and over and...
So what say ye -- "sitemap" or "sitemap.html"?
