[API-users] Why is the downloads interface different than other occurrence endpoints?

I'm curious why the occurrence/download/ endpoint has a different interface
than the other occurrence endpoints (occurrence/search).  I ask because I
work on the R client rgbif, and it would be nice to provide the same exact
interface to users whether they are getting JSON data or spinning up a
download.  However, the query interfaces are quite different.  This isn't a
big deal, as I can make both occurrence/download and occurrence/search
endpoints  as similar as possible for users despite them being different
