There are many possible processing models for EPUB; from doing what you suggest (embedded web server working on unzipped content) to completely native processing and variants in between.   There is no specific/single implementation or requirement for same in the standard.

Also, there is no requirement that the entire bundle be downloaded either - you could use byte range requests.

It might be a little bit off-track but I wonder what is the processing model of epub files, once the zipped bundle is downloaded. Basically, I naïvely wonder why once downloaded and unpacked it is not possible to create a Web server where the root is the root of the epub file. It could be an in memory HTTP server.
