It wouldn't be strange. ob-jupyter [1] auto-generates file names for
images, and it's convenient.

Currently, I believe that if you set global ":file-ext" and
":output-dir" arguments, and also set ":results graphics file" and name
the source block, then org-mode will generate the file name based on the
source block name, output-dir, and file-ext. I think this is similar to
what you want, except for the requirement to name the source
block. Perhaps we could generate the filename from a UUID or hash,
similar to ob-jupyter, if the source block isn't named.

I do think this is more involved, and somewhat orthogonal, to dropping
the ":results file" requirement when ":results graphics" is present. So
it should probably be done in a separate commit.
