I've never liked the definition used on the wiki page:
"By adding rel="enclosure" to a hyperlink, a page indicates that the
destination of that hyperlink is intended to be downloaded and cached."
It's vague - perhaps intentionally. To me *any* link is intended to be
downloaded and cached. That's the whole point of making a link.
In videoblogs rel="enclosure" is used to designate a different meaning. By
adding rel="enclosure" to a link we're saying "Here is another document
that is a part of the current document. The enclosure should be
redistributed/downloaded along with the current document."
