It's not entirely clear to me why a ResourceRequest for an anchor download is a special case for FrameLoader.  How do the other folks who call startDownload handle this issue?

Darin A suggested in https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=64580#c8 that perhaps HTMLAnchorElement could start the download directly without having to go through FrameLoader. I wanted to try that out and see if that is doable now cleanly. But perhaps a larger refactoring would be necessary for that, and for now it's best to go through FrameLoader?
