OK, but is a proposed standard a none standard since everybody seems to
use it already? When should we start using it? When will it become
standard?

Have I understood you right, that you support my position; at least it
is just a matter of time?

Microsoft recommends using it:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q260519

Thousands of web developers are using it, just search for it like this:
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&q=Content-Disposition+Header

Google when serving files like doc, xls, ppt is probably using it, at
least the open/save dialog opens when you search for files with those
extentions.

The browser Opera always seem to use the open/save dialog no matter
what, but there might be other methods to open it than the
Content-Disposition Header?
