Pick up changes to download link tracker from alphagov/govuk_frontend_toolkit#214

Events show a user intent, but are less likely to be interpreted incorrectly – it shows that a user clicked a link on a page, rather than the file was successfully downloaded and viewed.

It should avoid inflating our pageview numbers, prevent an increase in our cardinality and leave open a more complete pageview tracking solution from logs (eg for direct downloads).
