As a scientist rather than a web programmer I have used ftp for a lot longer than http is

My offerings as HTML anchors, served by apache, usually point to fully specified ftp:// URI's
which I keep in an ftp directory which is accessible via ordinary ftp clients. I haven't had
any complaints about strange formats and filename extensions including .tsv but rarely .csv.
The browsers, including IE, seem to pass the problem to an ftp plugin without complaint.
