I think you're asking a bit much here! If there are a bunch of different things all zipped together (say PDF files, CSV and images), then what are you going to do if you want to communicate the content, provide a list of media types like this: `application/pdf,text/csv,image/png`? 

`dcat:medaType` should be used with a Media Type to indicate the compression types unless the compression type itself doens't have an IANA Media Type (a new BZip format or something) in which case `dct:format` should be used.
