The logic behind this is actually pretty simple as it's very Apple-esque. Filenames are ugly and we all know things shouldn't be ugly, they should be pretty. So, in an attempt to make sure they're pretty, "filename display" isn't an option. They try and make you use the ID3 tags to sort all your music, which is all well and good, however, some of us have inordinate amounts of music and the idea of tagging 160GB of mp3's with ID3 tags is murder.

The method that the iPod and (in turn) iTunes uses is fine if you use it to start your collection. If you're like me and have a massive running collection, iTunes is nothing but a royal pain in the ### and trying to tag all of my music is just downright impossible.
