The benefit of this table seems to be just avoiding the use of a <content> element with an src attribute in the config file while the drawback is that you have to scan your zip file for all files in order. The spec and conformance would be simpler without that, without losing features I think. WDYT?

I agree that it's not a big burden. I think it's more a question of taste. I would prefer putting more in the configuration than less. What do you mean by "you can cache it easily" ?
