Regarding the idea of a hashing feature for downloads:

 * I don't see why this idea should be in HTML rather than doing it the 
   way that the many, many existing solutions do it.

 * I don't see why this idea would work anyway. All the proposed UIs have 
   obvious and fatal flaws.

Both of these points need to be fully addressed before it would make sense 
to add this feature to HTML.
