I would love this feature, but with one thing added. Imported files would automatically take the name of the original files.

We must be at cross-purposes here! The original request is for multiple files to be imported into a fresh, single file. There would be no plurality of files to take on a plurality of names: just a single name for the single file made up of the contents of the many component files. You'd name the composite file when you saved it - and you'd very likely put it in the same folder, so you wouldn't want it to have the same name as any of its components.

Offending characters would be stripped or substituted.

Since the component files already exist, they can have no "offending characters" - either within their text or in their file names.

Duplicate file names would have an increment adder.

You cannot have duplicate file names in the single source directory of course - unless you are extending the idea to importing, say, a combination of .odt and .doc files into one document in one process!
