Relevance substitution is not performed on the download action command lines. This is because these actions are scanned by other components that deliver the downloads, and these other components run on different machines which do not share those client's evaluation context. This restriction, however, allows BigFix to prefetch downloads through a relay hierarchy to the clients.
