If it was in overwrite mode, that might be OK, except then, for the cases where one wanted to insert something at the end of the name part, one has to remember to hit the INS key now... But if the extension is there and you wanted to overtype it, you don't want insert mode -- d--ned if you do and if you don't..... There is probably NO good single answer for all users, which is why I think we may end up with a configuration option...
