Would a .BAS File also be ok as an entry ?

Yes, that's no problem.
If you do something totally "out of order" it would go to the Wild category.

Doesn't the A in ASCII mean Amstrad?

Actually ASCII means American Standard Code for Information Interchange.
Amstrad ASCII would mean Amstrad American Standard Code for Information Interchange.
That's why in my mind AMSCII would not be that bad: AMstrad Standard Code for Information Interchange.
Although, AMSCII is not really official.
