Well, we do not have standard for it as such. We keep _.htaccess because 
all .htaccess in typo3 require several Apache modules and putting 
.htaccess to typo3 instead of _.htaccess may break some installation. 
But not many people rename these files. Previously we introduced some of 
them to make huge performance increase in BE but not many sites know 
about it or use it...
