You mean your example with index.html?

I am repating that for me this file is not an artifacts.

We can imagine that we will have repositories accssible via ftp://  
file://  scp:// , cvs://
In such repositiries "index.html" is rather useless

My intutitive definition of artifacts is:
a) Artifact is a file which you would like to see in any of those type 
of repositories mentioned above
b) Artifact is a file which is in some sense intresting for 
computers/tools (and possibly for humans)

index.html is not such file.

So I am still +1 for directories per type
