File naming - some suggestion for makers

I own multiple cameras and occasionally  end up with pictures with the same file name ,either from same camera or another camera of same brand .

Since the advent of digital cameras and increasingly cheaper memory encouraged photographers to take more and more pictures  I wonder why makers dont use more digits- say 5 or even 6, in the file naming and/or allow user to change the alphabets  in order to give the pictures a more unique identity ?
