"nametemplate" isn't Debian-specific at all. RFC 1524 (the
specification for mailcap files) says:

   -- The "nametemplate" field gives a file name format, in which %s
      will be replaced by a short unique string to give the name of the
      temporary file to be passed to the viewing command.  This is only
      expected to be relevant in environments where filename extensions
      are meaningful, e.g., one coulld specify that a GIF file being
      passed to a gif viewer should have a name eding in ".gif" by using

Mailcap entries for lynx will need the nametemplate field if they
don't use the -force_html option.
