I think it should...

Object with an assigned behavior:  "me"
Object that contains the behavior script:  "this me"

If the backscript stack holds the behavior script then the stack itself 
should be "this me". The target (the download button) which has the 
behavior assigned would be "me".

Logically, anyway.

If the script is in the message hierarchy, I wouldn't think you'd need 
to send or dispatch anything, just issue the command normally. You can 
debug that pretty easily and there's one less level of abstraction.
