Add XML mention to WP import instructions

When exporting from WordPress, there is mention of both an .XML file and WXR:
"When you click the button below WordPress will create an XML file for you to save to your computer.
This format, which we call WordPress eXtended RSS or WXR, will contain your posts, pages, comments, custom fields, categories, and tags."
But when you import a WP file, there is no longer a mention of .xml - I think this is confusing for novice users (I just walked one through the import) as they have a .xml sitting on their computers:
"Upload your WordPress eXtended RSS (WXR) file and weâ€™ll import the posts, pages, comments, custom fields, categories, and tags into this site.
Choose a WordPress WXR file to upload, then click Upload file and import."
I suggest adding a line to the import text like:
Choose a WordPress WXR file (this file will end in .xml) to upload, then click Upload file and import.
