In the Downloads API, we currently ensure that an empty placeholder file is present in the real target location while a download is in progress. When the download fails or is stopped, the placeholder is removed. We might want to keep the placeholder in case we are also preserving partially downloaded data, though having a zero-sized file with the final extension kept in place for a long time might not be ideal.
