I suspected I was missing something.

Though httparchive stats  are "number of compressed responses over the
number of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript requests" which is different that a per
website coverage. Correct?

I assumed the mod_gzip sits looks at the: 'Content-Encoding:gzip ' header.
Or what else could it look at?

Wouldn't this  mean that low end site not in the top 300K on Alexa have a
much higher non-gzipped rate?
