No, it is a myth and it always was a myth. Any extension will work,
including no extension, if you so desire. The engines (IB and FB)
simply do not care how you name a database, except that it has to be
"legal" characters. I have a vague memory that placing a numeral as
the first character is illegal, but it's vague enough for me to think
I might be recalling my ancient times with IBM ebcdic naming constraints...
