This is much needed. The plugin repo should really integrate this to make it easy for authors to advertise their plugins. I also like what Stanslav (from AWP Facebook Group) did and took this and made a generator: khromov.github.io/wordpress-badge-generator/

Otto also replied to our query that we will think about it, though it seems he wants to do more then a download button.

If you're looking to serve downloads from the repo on your site via a button, you just need to link to the zip folder location like the button on the repo does. To keep the version up-to-date without ongoing maintenance, use wpapi.org to get the current version of the theme/plugin and append it to the URL.
