Ok... Any way the caching still doesn't work with or without all the
possible headers for this but this is not the point here. My question still
is... is this behaviour (display: none <=> download) clearly defined in any
spec or not?

Because if it's not, we can continue arguing indefinitely as the
implementors will most likely develop the solution that suits them the best.
(I've stopped talking about any cache aspects here)
