I also think that supporting gzip is important.

Practically every open source project on the face of this planet, ships
its source as a gzip'ed tarball. Which projects use xz for that?

xz is the new hot compression (like 7zip was a few years ago, and bz2 was before it). GNOME has switched to xz tarballs only: https://mail.gnome.org/archives/devel-announce-list/2011-September/msg00003.html and other projects are moving in the same direction.

Just a data point.
