Look at it the other way around. Downloading a file is essentially no
different from copying a file over the network. Nautilus has familiar
feedback for this kind of action. Then why implement a separate progress
window, nowhere near as capable as a real nautilus view?

I second Osma's reply. Of course I want to do stuff with the files I
just downloaded. If it's a movie, for instance, I want to double click it
so it opens in Totem. If it's a PDF downloaded from CiteSeer I will
likely want to rename it. You can think up any examples you like.
