Incorrect, IE:

Right click over the link, "Save Target as"

sure the browser wont display it correct but you can save it fine.

Oh give me a break - is there ANY modern browser that will 
not prompt you to
save the file if it does not recognize it as a displayable 
format? Your
reasoning is going downhill ...

Have you ever setup an Apache web server (or any other)? Create a random
binary file and call it something.xyz (or any other extention not defined in
your mime-type) and see if ANY browser will load it as something other than
garbage.
