Maybe you should just read the manual:
Considering some text in the name of a scene can trigger a new bpm, then expecting Live to understand for instance "80bpm" in the name of a source file, really shouldn't' be unreasonable. I don't have many loops, but almost all of them have the actual bpm in the name.
