[Jeremy Garchow] "Final Cut now organizes clips in a folder based on the camera metadata date (just like it used to with the files) so the Finder is more organized by date. I prefer to have my file names match the original clip media, as I can always find my way back. I realize that this may not be a popular option, but I found when FCPX renamed the original media, it was harder to go and find the camera original media if needed."

I definitely see how the new structure is useful for some people. Sl there should be a preference item to allow either. But, imagine yourself in my place having to relink a project that you finished years ago that might have media in 100 different folders. Each of them with identical names... Clip #1, Clip #2, etc. How would you know which clip is which? Unique names just make a whole hell of a lot of sense.
