It is better to go with Drupal's default name-convention-based principles
for naming template files, which do the same thing, as explained in the ref
cited above (http://drupal.org/node/190815).
However, there is nothing to stop you from implementing a block.tpl.php
which has a conditional structure involving one or more includes.
