It is (unfortunately) part of the spec.
I'll never understand why Microsoft used the .DLL extension. Even
pre-dotnet dlls didn't always use .DLL (e.g. ActiveX controls use .OCX
and control panel applets used .CPL).
To make things even worse P/Invoke uses the "DllImport" attribute to
import non-dotnet shared libraries. And on Unix, shared libraries don't
even have a DLL extension!
Personally, I think they should change the extension to .DNA (Dot Net
Assembly) in V2 :-). Mmm netmodules could even use .RNA.
