[whatwg] Multiple file download

Currently there are implementations allowing multiple file upload without
the need for flash or java applets.

What doesn't seem to be there, unless a java applet is used (haven't come
across one using flash) is the multiple file download. Even Google Docs uses
a zip file to download multiple files.

Was wondering if this could be made part of the standard. If something
like resource
packages <http://limi.net/articles/resource-packages/> were used, the server
would still be sending one file which could be heavily compressed, letting
the UA to decompress and display as if a bunch of files had been downloaded
