filename rule problem

I'm getting complaints that the filename rules are too restrictive. I
certainly understand why the rules are in place. The specific rule one of my
clients has a problem with is the "Attempt to hide real filename extension"
rule. The particular file that someone sent them was called
"company.confidential.namechng.plan.doc". Obviously, this completely violates
Windows filename conventions.

I don't really think killing that rule is a good idea though, because then the
system would perhaps allow nasty things in.

Anyone had any experience with this?
