--- Comment #3 from David Tardon <> ---
First, Zip is not a compression algorithm. It's a container that can contain
multiple files, each of whose can be stored either compressed or uncompressed.
The compression algorithm is called Deflate and it is applied to each
compressed file separately.

Second, the thing about standards is that one is supposed to do what the
standard says. And it says the following (ODF 1.2, part 3, section 2.1.1):

"An OpenDocument Package shall meet the following requirements:
A) It shall be a Zip file, as defined by [ZIP]. All files contained in the Zip
file shall be non compressed (STORED) or compressed using the “deflate”
(DEFLATED) algorithm."
[more requirements follow]

Anything else IS NOT an ODF document. And we definitely don't want to extend
the collection of formats for export by another one which only newest
version(s) of libreoffice would be able to read.
