Probably because they shouldn't be called by the Webserver. I would call
them *.cli.php. Benefits:

- would allow nice syntax highlighting for most editors that support the
".php" file extension
- would not throw out the source code to someone that points to that
file using the web browser, but instead display the "die()" comment from
Martin's suggestion

So +1 for Martin's suggestion, and +1 for any name ending with "*.php"
but having some hint that they shouldn't be called directly from the
webbrowser (e.g. "*.cli.php"). -1 for any other ending.
