Thanks for the summary. My use case is the first one. Here are two popular examples I make use of:

* [data dumps from the German National Library (DNB)](https://data.dnb.de/opendata/) use `.gz`
* [data dumps from Wikimedia](https://dumps.wikimedia.org/) (e.g. [Wikidata dumps](https://dumps.wikimedia.org/wikidatawiki/20180601/)) use `.7z` and `.gz`

It's also common to server `zip` file archive with a single file although this does not make much sense.

Anyway, I doubt that providers will change their web server settings just to make dcat ontology happy. One example of a dataset with multiple distributions from DNB:

https://data.dnb.de/opendata/GND.hdt.gz
https://data.dnb.de/opendata/GND.jsonld.gz
https://data.dnb.de/opendata/GND.ttl.gz
https://data.dnb.de/opendata/GND.rdf.gz
