The reason we have the /latest name is to make it easy for people 
scripting the WP install. It does have a rule that you can put the 
version number in there if you want, like /latest-1.5.tar.gz, and it'll 
work. When you download through a browser it does send the correct file 
name, using

header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=blah.zip');

Which seems to work everywhere but linux command line tools.
