(in reply to comment #22 and #21)
I think a target='_download' would probably be a decent solution. I'm not as
clear why authors need control over the filename (either in http disposition
headers or here). I can see why an email MIME part needs to attach filesystem
metadata to an included file since there's no other place for that metadata.
However, in the case of http or other URL-based delivery, all of that
filesystem metadata is available already. The issue of providing a different
filename might be a nice enhancement, but hardly a necessity.
