"enclosure" is a completely opaque name. I have no idea how it is
meant to refer to "download the linked resource instead of navigating
to it". If I think about it in terms of Atom I can *kinda* imagine
it, but it feels like a bad term there, and it would be an even worse
term in HTML.
A boolean @download attribute is much clearer and more direct. If
you're using @download to name the file as well, then adding a @rel
value is unneeded.
