Garth – you wouldn’t want to gzip the entire CBOR stream in a non-HTTP-based exchange.   (yes, you could, but it would mess up all sorts of things).  You would really want to use CBOR object compression which doesn’t exist today in the standard…

Why?  If it was for non-HTTP (like FTP or USB stick) it wouldn't be a steam, just a blob, and you'd want to unzip before processing.  No?

Best,
