rel-enclosure is deliberately limited, so that it can be used as part 
of a wider format.

The issue of alternative representations seems like a common one for 
media. At the HTML level rel="alternate" is used for this.


If you are listing alternatives, use  a list

So for your examples, a possible model would be

<ol class="alternatives">
<li><a href="story.doc" rel="enclosure alternate" 
type="application/msword">the story in Word format</a></li>
<li><a href="story.pdf" rel="enclosure alternate" 
type="application/pdf">the story in pdf format</a></li>
<li><a href="story.txt" rel="enclosure alternate" type="text/plain">the 
story in text format</a></li>

just an initial thought - lets do a proper problem statement and follow 
the process:
