For my use cases I have hundreds of HTML files that I want skinned and 
none that I don't want skinned. If it should occur that I want the 
original source file unskinnned then I would be happy to request 
something like "file.source.html" as has been suggested in other 
situations here.

The alternative is for me to change the name of all those files I 
already have. Not pleaseent, but am I unusual in this use case?

The problem is that a request for somePage.html is a request for an HTML 
page, it does not say wether it should be skinned or not.
