It would be great until you took two pictures that gave the same ASCII-art representation but were different in some other important way. For example, astrophotographers who want to do image stacking would find it very inconvenient. So would people who use some bracketing options, like color balance bracketing or even exposure bracketing with 1/3 stop increments. Sequence numbers may be boring and uninformative, but they stop you from accidentally overwriting an important picture.
