In the interest of keeping this discussion sane, I will suggest the  
following link


The use of "magic numbers" to identify files does have a long  
history, and emacs is certainly a great text editor with a long  
history. TeXShop should not be expected to use the same "magic  
number" paradigm that some developer contributed to the emacs code at  
some distant point in the past. I use both programs for editing latex  
documents, because they both have their strengths, and I suppose the  
original submitter has similar feelings.
