iTunes is not the most standard thing on earth but is not guilty on this point.

The specs says clearly that enclosure is an item level element, so one
enclosure by message (in the same way there is one title, one text,
one date  for a post... a multi-enclosures stuff makes as muche sense
than a multi-title or a multi-text thing.


See a Dave Vinner rant about this point :
