I would love for files downloaded via a web browser or email client to
be marked as having come from the Internet. (Major bonus points if a
sync tool like nextcloud can keep files I generated labeled separate
from ones my coworkers made)

Chromium (by default), wget (by default), and curl (with --xattr) at least already do this; they set the user.xdg.origin.url extended attribute as documented at https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/CommonExtendedAttributes/

Firefox, unfortunately, does not do so yet, see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=665531
