ganeshjacharya, What would prevent me from making a new folder without the .htm ?
While structuring a website that use hierarchical URLs... a topic can have deeper sub and sub-sub topics.
e.g. example.com/sportscars (might initially start with talking about Sport Cars... and then the topic may have to expand further to discuss example.com/sportscars/BMW example.com/sportscars/Bugatti
and in this case if we start with example.com/sportscars.htm and then need to divide this topic further we will need to start with a empty example.com/sportscars/ and then add a redirect to example.com/sportscars.htm etc. which takes additional efforts.
