Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Don't be silly...

Indeed, at one time (remember when there was more than one word processor
available for PCs?) there were five or six different, incompatible word
processor formats all using the same extension, ".doc."

If you want another burst of laughter... now that Apple is trying to phase out
type/creator in favor of extensions in OS X, where is APPLE'S mechanism for
registering extensions for use within OS X?

This is the second such comment I've seen, and I'm wondering where you
are getting this information that Apple is phasing out creator codes? I
don't see that on their web site, and creator codes are (according to
some 2001 docs) given higher precedence than file extensions
(http://developer.apple.com/techpubs/macosx/Essentials/SystemOverview/Finder/
The_Handlin_d_Documents.html). Even their new Bundle layout features
support for creator codes in the Info.plist file
(http://developer.apple.com/techpubs/macosx/Essentials/SystemOverview/Bundles/
iAnatomy_of_a_Bundle.html). Is there some other source I'm missing that
deprecates creator codes?
