Track file name changes as part of version control

In order that one can keep track of the origin of data, which is particularly important, in case one has to backtrack, it would be very helpful to have changes like this as part of version control.

2 possible scenarios for which keeping track of file name changes would be beneficial.
1) Instead of adding metadata, someone added a fair bit of identifying information to some of the file names; these very long file names now pose a problem, especially when backing up to CD/DVDs.
2) when getting copies of microfilm frames, the files are usually numbered sequentially
Keeping track of the 'origin' of the current file would help keeping the trail intact.

One way would be to add such information to the metadata, but then I see problems with the current algorithm Daminion seems to use, using only image data for duplicate comparison.
