I would vote for that. Having .ts for the recording has the nice
effect that media-players and who knows what can just handle the
recordings. The other files I would consider VDR private data which
is not standardized like TS. So I do not see a point in them having
any extension at all. If they are in a .rec-directory it should be
pretty clear what a file named "index" contains.
