An analogy would be to ask folks to not use a .pdf extension if their file is not an actual pdf file (and is just plain text). I don't think Tim is suggesting that no one publish .hpprgm files. But if we do, at least ensure that it is in fact such type of file.

Exactly correct. Publishing and sharing the files is great - provided they are actually hpprgm files. If they are just text files then there is lots of potential for confusion, crashes, and just not a nice experience for anyone. You talk about a need to share binary only vs source only. Yet that wouldn't be possible if a whole bunch of people are putting "hpprgm" extension files around that in reality are just plain text. I am encouraging people to look at that as an executable (which it is) versus a text file.
