Just about all AV programs can be customised. If you did have a file with .idf extension just add it to the exclusion list

It won't create any problems at any time. The ldf extension is a convention, nothing more. As far as SQL's concerned, the extension of the log file is irrelevant (it knows by checking the first section of the file whether a particular file is a log file or not)

This works fine, though is obviously silly. The only problems it'll cause is with the admins. Not recommended, but that's because people expect to see the common extensions used the normal way, not because of any problems it'll cause with SQL

CREATE DATABASE Weird ON  PRIMARY 
( NAME = N'Weird', FILENAME = N'D:\Develop\Databases\Weird.xlsx' , SIZE = 3072KB , FILEGROWTH = 1024KB )
LOG ON
( NAME = N'Weird_log', FILENAME = N'D:\Develop\Databases\Weird_log.txt' , SIZE = 1024KB , FILEGROWTH = 1024KB)
GO

The only problem the attach will cause is the part where you open the file browser to locate the log file. The file browser will search for *.mdf and *.ldf so you'll need to change this to all files.
Apart from that, it makes no difference at all.
