    I'm afraid that the reason why it is not possible preserve the original file name is to avoid possibles duplicated file name  errors while uploading to the same dropbox directory for example: 2 users uploading images files with the same filename,  the submission ID prefix is useful  when relating  the files with the pdf document containing the form fields data.

    I'll forward your request to our feature request list, I cannot commit if this feature will be implemented or not, but you can be sure that our developer team will read this message.

    As soon as we get news about it status we will let you know.
