Thanks @jakubklimek, introduction of additional properties for compression and packaging is a good idea. The handling of package formats with multiple files requires to distinguish more case:

1. package with files of same type (e.g. tar file with csv inside)
2. package with multiple files of different type (unspecified, could be described in a README file inside the package)
3. package with multiple files of different type as specified in a packaging standard that only defines the inner files but not how these files are packaged (e.g. <https://frictionlessdata.io/specs/data-package/>).
