I like your first suggestion.  The second is less convenient because we
already use prefices 'C-u' and 'C-u C-u'.

The following patch adds a new command 'dired-mark-suffix', and
modifies 'dired-mark-extension'.
I) dired-mark-suffix: it behaves as 'dired-mark-extension' used to do,
   i.e., don't prepends any '.' to the user input.
II) dired-mark-extension: It prepends '.' to EXTENSION when not present.
    This way became consistent with 'file-name-extension', that is, if
    (file-name-extension FILE) returns nil, then 'dired-mark-extension'
    will not mark FILE.

Subject: [PATCH] dired-mark-suffix: New command

Now dired-mark-extension prepends '.' to extension when not present.
Add the new command dired-mark-suffix to preserve the previous
behaviour (Bug#25942).
* lisp/dired-x.el (dired-mark-suffix): New command;
mark files ending in a given suffix.
(dired--mark-suffix-interactive-spec): New defun.
(dired-mark-extension, dired-mark-suffix): Use it.
* doc/misc/dired-x.texi (Advanced Mark Commands): Update manual.
; * etc/NEWS (Changes in Specialized Modes and Packages in Emacs 26.1):
; Mention these changes.
