Am I wrong to believe the standard picture naming keeps track? Mind you I am just below 10K so dont know what will happen then...

Incorrect. Just because the image has a number system does not mean it is accurate. After 9,999 images, it goes back to 0001. Not to mention there could be other factors that would not keep it accurate either such as switching to video, etc. Not to mention, the naming/numbering of filename can be reformatted back to 0001 and you wouldn't know what the shutter count is.

People look for shutter count to see how many shutter actuations there were. Shutters have a lifespan before it goes bad. They are like miles on a car.

If it was that simple, people wouldn't be making apps, websites or trying to find that holy grail of getting shutter counts.
