Forms: buttons instead of white-space string inputs
At e.g. admin/file "Allowed file extensions" or admin/email "Recipients feedback" white-space separated strings are used which can be error prone. Much nicer would be a functionality to enter separate items like e.g. at alias.

In our frontend session today we've implemented this feature for the "Recipients feedback". Moritz will adapt this also for "Allowed file extensions" in admin/file.

As you already assumed, it isn't possible to know what file extensions they may have in use so a whitelist approach wouldn't work.
A typical blacklist approach would most likely include extensions like ".exe" to protect Windows users from viruses.
But in this case even that may be part of their workflow so it's their own choice and their own responsibility.
Only managers can change this anyway and only registered users can upload and, like Bernhard wrote, they should know what they are doing.
