The question is: how would you do that from an extension profile
without replicating the entire 'File' fti for just this little change?

Then you aren't making an "extension":  it is really a "base" profile in
disguise, as you want to control types "outside" your profile's scope.
I don't want to make it easy for "add-ons" to scribble on other people's
types (although yuppie's suggestion would work):  the model here is that
either you are configuring the site *as a whole*, or you are "extending"
it by making "well-behaved" extensions to it.

Maybe he isn't making an add-on. But add-ons are not the only use case for extension profiles.

http://svn.zope.org/CMF/branches/2.0/CMFDefault/profiles/views_support/ is an example of what you call a "base profile in disguise". It describes a variation of the default profile. I think this is a legitimate use case that helps to avoid redundancies and makes maintaining customizations easier.
