I have added an feature request issue on galaxy-extras to support this. Earlier this year, Hagai Cohen was exploring the existing Galaxy tools and it seems like some of them expect dataset files to end with .dat. So I reworked the multiple file dataset stuff so each of the individual parts ended that way, it is probably the best changeset to look at if you are considering changing the naming behavior associated with multiple file datasets.
