Correct. The extension just tells the OS what program to run to access the file.

If you use GIF as the extension and someone left-clicks on it, they may get a screen full of text or gibberish or a red X, as the browser attempts to open the file as a GIF.

So just have them Right click, Save Target As (or Save Link As if using Firefox) to download and then change the extension from GIF to MXD.

Best to test it out yourself to be sure everything works the way it should.
