How can we improve the OneDrive Developer Platform?

Allow creating "direct download" flavour links when sharing a file

Allow creating a shared link for a file, which can be send to a user via email (for instance) and user can download the file by using the link even from a computer without the need of using any Microsoft office account/api.
To be clear, sharing files without any restriction, a "direct link" flavour.
It's working as expected for a zip file for instance, probably because Microsoft cannot open it, so it lets you to download the file.
But for a word file, Office Online is opened in the browser when clicking on the link.
The behavior I'm looking for is the same than with a zip file for any kind of file type.
