That is the name, though. Within each version of the file is a longer 
name containing the version, e.g.

     # ArabicShaping-9.0.0.txt

Like many of the normative data files of the Unicode Standard, it is 
intended to be machine parseable as well as humanly readable, hence the 
file name is the normative reference.

Getting Spiekermann to not like Helvetica is like training
a cat to stay out of water. But I'm impressed that people
know who to ask when they want to ask someone to not like
Helvetica. That's progress. -- David Berlow
