Hi Gregg,
A question. I think that every user can configure user agents for open contents both inside browser and as stand-alone.
Some example:
- pdf: can Be downloaded, open in Adobe Acrobat Reader or view inside web browser window.
- ppt: can be downloaded, viewed directly in browser (with ie only) or view inside a Viewer.
- mpeg: can Be downloaded, viewed directly in browser (using the default viewer that the user has choose to use: windows media, quicktime, realone, winamp, etc.) or view inside a viewer.

So, are we sure that we have a right definition? Or you intend only client-side application download?

    Oggetto: downloads
    The following note has been added to the Intro to reflect a decision at F2F
    to differentiate downloads from web content
    Editorial Note: The working group is considering adding the following note
    to the conformance section to differentiate Web Content from standard stand
    alone software and other products that are downloaded over the internet.
    Note: If data, software or other data are downloaded over the internet but
    are not viewed via a user agent then they are not considered Web content and
    are not covered by these guidelines.
    Add this to the discussion of the INTRO tomorrow.
