I think that ".racket-source" would be an annoyingly long filename 
extension for many people who would use Racket.

Also, I think that it is reasonable to call Scribble files "Scribble" 
files rather than "Racket Scribble" files.  (I suppose that you could 
make a good argument that Scribble source files should use the same 
extension as any other Racket source file, however.)
