I download windows files on my mac for installation to my PC at some future date. ClamXav had found the occasional infected file.

Agreed! But not for Windows-only viruses.

And how would that infection have spread by itself? And how would the target Windows computer (to which you would copy the file one day) not find that virus?

I am not saying that Macs will never suffer from virus attacks, but I fail to see why Macs should scan for Windows-only viruses (other than trying to be friendly).
