A random thought just occured to me (maybe dumb)
But is it a relation qualifier or in fact a target?
In http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/browsers.html#valid-browsing-context-name-or-keyword

    A valid browsing context name or keyword is any string
    that is either a valid browsing context name or that is
    an ASCII case-insensitive match for one of: _blank,
    _self, _parent, or _top.
what about adding 

<a href="foo.pdf" target="_download">Save a Tree, Eat a beaver</a>
