The answer, of course, is "it depends". But the condition that it
depends on is probably easy to figure out: the standard behavior
is okay for lmi if no lmi extension is regarded as "standard" by
msw (and therefore tied to some application other than lmi).

The important extensions for files that lmi can save and load are:
  .cns, .ill, .database, .policy, .rounding, .strata
  .gpt, .mec
are of secondary importance as few users work with them. (There's
also a '.txt' extension that I added in paleolithic times, just
to have something to experiment with, but that doesn't matter at
all because it's masked unless the 'ash_nazg' argument is used.)

If you can confirm that none of those important extensions is
"standard", then we just upgrade wx and Bob's your uncle.
