[Desktop] Allow Storing of Offline Files Onto External Hard Drives

I have asked if spotify allow downloads onto premium account holder's computer hardrives but they don't allow it currently. The suggested I post something on here so people can vote on the idea.
I asked "Have you thought about allowing premium account holders to download music onto their hardrives so they can use the songs in other ways? Even if its a limited amount per month?"
Even if its a limited amount per month of about 25-50 it may encourage more people to use their site. I think it would also help save people money in the long run as currently if you want to own the song for use in other places, you have to pay twice. its £14.99/ month for a premium account and then to buy a song at another site can be 99p/song!!
