This sounds like a great approach to me.

One option might be to borrow naming behavior from the comment
functionality in ob-tangle which looks like the following (from line 426
(intern (or (nth 4 info) ; explicit #+name:
(format "%s:%d" ; constructed from header and position
(or (ignore-errors (nth 4 (org-heading-components)))
> 2. should :output-dir apply to the :file case as well?
If you mean "should :output-dir be used as the base when :file is a
relative pathname" then I'd say "yes", and I think if this isn't the
current behavior then the current behavior should be changed.
Thanks for this nice patch,
