"In order to update the Google Apps for devices which have not been
updated to the latest versions of Android, and to simplify the GApps
installation process, the Google Apps are now traditionally packaged
in a separate flashable ZIP which can be easily installed on top of a
ROM. This allows for faster installations, easier upgrades of Google
software, less tasks for the custom recovery to perform, more
user-friendly installations, and an overall more streamlined process."
Unfortunately, this doesn't really answer any of the questions raised.
