Porting over from,

We seem to get this complaint periodically, that clicking on the download links doesn't actually open a download dialog box, the user has to know to Save As...

Perhaps the verdict will be against it, but I think we should have the discussion, as it was never really addressed on the bug tracker because that wasn't the right place to have it.

Should we do this with the HTML download attribute where we can?
