In talking this over with [Zen|\|gatsby\|], I no longer think that 
.html, of any extension, should be included in this list. Drupal 
shouldn't give or generate 404s for broken *embedded* files that it 
ships with, like gif, jpegs, css, js, etc. just like you have. Good.

HTML files, however, are never embedded (I'll ignore, for the sake of 
sanity, crap like IFRAMES), and should receive the same 404 treatment as 
other "major" content, like those generated by a Drupal node.
