And what about something like :
<a href="foo.pdf" alt="foo.txt">The Document</a>

Of course "alt" is not the best word (I don't have the
time to seek for a better one), but it would be a
great thing to have an alternate link if the first one
fails.

The only thing which is better with nesting <a> is
that you may have an infinite number of link. But it
should be limited to only one.
