I like the more extensive file naming convention, because I feel the
need to distinguish between products. I would also avoid using chapter
numbers in the file name, because Chapter 4 might later become another
chapter number, or an appendix, or be re-used in another book.
I would use something like INT for introduction, HDW for hardware
requirements, PGM for program requirements, etc.

(I've also gotten used to very short abbreviations.)
