This really is a pretty significant usability impediment to widespread use of sourcemaps. In the case of jQuery I have now seen two out of three CDNs hose the sourcemap functionality by renaming the files and we haven't been doing it even six months. I'm having to provide a custom build to both Google and CDNJS to ensure that doesn't happen, which now means the bits on jQuery's CDN and Microsoft's are not the same bits as on Google and CDNJS. That seems like a bad thing.
