Not so strange. Methinks it's a good idea. It's an easy way for the
TFTP program to distinguish between appropriate files for each
hardware version. Uploading the wrong firmware is usually
catastrophic. The files are actually binary images of the firmware
and traditionally have a .bin file extension. However, there is
nothing unique about the extension, as other programs don't need to
recognize the files and literally anything may be used.
