I suppose it's because this feature is provided to allow hosting of
*binary packages* like .msi or .exe installers for Windows or,
say, .deb and .rpm packages for various other OSes. Obviously, that's
something someone usually does on their workstation.
An ability to download a tip of any branch as a .zip or .tar.gz file is
builtin and is provided by github itself out of the box.
