Hello Richard Weeks,
Making this would be a breaking change as the MVC ScriptRegistrar is configured to look by default in ~/Scripts/<assembly version>.
Even if the versions of MVC and kendo match one day the file names won't so there will be no conflict. Perhaps we can change the folder path in the Kendo nuget package if more users start to see this as an issue.
