Not as far as I'm concerned. But a max of 32 characters for each name 
would be advisable to stay within HFS+ levels. Also, introducing case 
sensitivity would not be a good idea (i.e. a file Foo and a file fOO in 
the same directory).

Also, the total depth should be concerned. I think it would be wise to 
keep directory names as short as possible while letting file names run 
up to 32 chars.
