There already is an ad-hoc standard for it:

  Content-type:        application/octet-stream
  Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="fname.ext"

See http://www.ics.uci.edu/pub/ietf/http/hypermail/1996q4/0048.html
and followups for more information.

If you want to make it into a real standard for HTTP/1.x, you should
start by writing a small internet-draft.
