That is only legacy. Since the web is older then Windows 95, which
brought LFN to FAT and ISO9660 (Joilet), there were some file extensions
shortened. I don't think there are any modern operating systems which
don't allow longer file extensions. WinXP even has standard extensions
which are much longer (.manifest, for example).
