One could also say that "(.)tar.gz" or "(.)gz" is the extension of that file. 
it's a matter of view and a matter of past exposure.
Most software cares about a single file extension only (file browsers, image
viewers, ..) and unlike users of Linux who are familiar with .tar.gz, Windows
users may not have seen any files with multiple extensions before.  Other than
.en.html and .tar.gz, is there anything common with multiple extension even
that users could have been run into before meeting Apache?
