So I guess type != ext, which makes sense.
I would prefer, for example:
I prefer this for the same reason that I prefer to have the version number in the filename. I think this also follows a well known convention that feels natural, even if the filename does get long in some cases.
Continuing to think of it from a tool perspective, the 3 elements of type you have here are:
1) artifact type (dist)
2) release type (src/bin/bin-win32/etc)
3) artifact format (extension: tar.gz, tar.bz2 - only makes sense for some artifact types)
