Wouldn't it be nice for the FileInput widget which has an initial value to have a download link with the current file name?

I don't think the widget should render this information by default, the reason being is that not everyone would want it and Django's form rendering is already too opinionated in my opinion.

I agree with @AndrewIngram. Exact rendering of widgets is a user choice; links to existing file content aren't hard to add, either in your own template, or in a custom widget.
