Of course, YES.  I proposed it!

The current header standards do not permit a '0 LDRAW_ORG Subpart' line in the header of a file in the parts folder.

I am proposing extending the header spec to allow a new quaifier to allow these files to be identified with a line like


Code:
0 !LDRAW_ORG Part Flexible_section UPDATE YYYY-NN

Any concerns?

This was agreed and has been added to the standards, but we didn't discuss file naming. It the past we have used (wasted) three-digit or uXXXX part numbers on the flexible section components. This is contrary to the current expectation that the LDraw part number matches the LEGO designID so that each part number represents a single moulding.

I have introduced a new naming convention such that flexible section components of parts shall be named with a kNN suffix - e.g. 30218k01.dat and 30218k02.dat as the component parts of 30218. I am working on an update to the Part numbers FAQ and will include this.
Out of curiosity... is there a hidden meaning behind the choice of "k"?

Could be that it works very well in a germanic language...

Yes - you are correct - k for komponent.
