Hm, tricky. I figure it should preferably be something that isn't typically
going to match a file name nor a date string, and ideally something that isn't
going to play tricks on people's shells (so no '!' or '$' etc).

Maybe "%{remote-name}" ? Or perhaps the shorter using a single letter: "%{r}".
It would match the syntax already used for -w. Even though I don't expect us
to think of other keywords right now, it still allows for us to add more in a
future if we can think of any.

Example command line:

  curl -z '%{r}' -O
