I'll take a look at migrating the last-cached .mbp file with the book when using Send to device. That would obviously be helpful.

That design decision precedes my involvement with calibre, but my sense is renaming the files is the right choice.

No, you're not forced to use any particular scheme, but the scheme you use must be declared in Preferences|Add/Save|Sending to device. The storage pattern declared there is used to generate the path to find the associated .mbp file. So as long as you're using calibre to Send to device, Fetch annotations should be able to find the associated .mbp file. If the scheme you're using isn't finding the .mbp file, please post a bug report.
