@makxdekkers You are right about the simple cases. However, I would say that double compression and similar techniques are often enough just bad practice. I often see compressed single files and packaged (and compressed) sets of files with the same schema where it makes sense (splitting larger files into smaller ones or just reducing size of file on disk). However, when I come across a zip file containing many other zip files, it is often because the publisher does not know what they are doing. The question seems to be where do we draw the line.
