As I have already pointed out, this is certainly an "abnormality" which can be shown to not serve any readily apparent or useful purpose. Whether it is "harmful" or not, however, is something of a matter of perspective.
The "sex is always desirable, and it'd be great if we could all live in a 24/7 orgy like human Bonobos" crowd think it's just fine, and even argue that the rest of us shouldn't be afraid to get in on the action every now and then. The more practical among us think it is a bit of a waste of time and resources at best, and a rather messy one at that.
However, one could argue much the same about many other anomalous conditions.
Other than stunted physiques and poor social skills, can dwarfism or autism really be said to cause all that much immediately pressing "harm?"
Would you seek to "cure" or prevent them anyway if you had the power? I would.

It's nobodies business what other people's sexual preference's are...ANY kind of sex between sane, consenting adults is fine.
Just as any two (or more?) sane, consenting adults should be able to marry.
As for what is considered 'normal' or 'natural'?
Couldn't give a sh!t.

Unfortunately, I doubt those with down syndrome are capable of truly understanding the meaning of the question. Probably the same for autism spectrum.
For homosexuality I think it's even less clear that it's harmful. I know many gays are content with their sexuality. Others might regret their orientation, but I would wager that's mostly a result of living in a society that, to some degree, isn't fully accepting of it. But if that's the case the solution isn't necessarily to prevent homosexuality but perhaps for society to become more accepting.
