Just from my experience, the issue of how pre-fetching relates to
enclosures needs alot of work. (It's not just for the rel-enclosure
Microformat... but enclosurs in RSS and Atom too.)
Enclosures are just things that a "part of" that thing. It says
nothing about pre-fetching.
However... many things take an "enclosure" to mean: prefetch this.
Some things, however, should be downloaded at the last possible
minute. (Even if that are "part of" that thing.)
