Am I right that's the main problem?
This sounds like over engineering to me.

In my mind, the whole implicit naming structure would exist for the 
"plug and play" use case for when you want source maps to Just Work (tm) 
and if you need anything more complicated, you are free to specify an 
exact URL as we do currently.

What am I missing?
