Given that this is a clearly documented feature of Wget, that -O is supposed to work as shell redirection, I think it should not pose too many issues. Yes, there is the security risk where another file may be overwritten, but I think the user should be careful about those.
I was thinking in a recursive download creating a symlink and then following it, using the same code path. If the user explicitely requested wget -O symlink, it's the user responsability.
