Sure, but such an approach makes it difficult to provide a mechanism which is easily extensible; for example, with the current approach, it is straightforward for third party tools to either easily replace completely, update selectively or augment simply the scripts provided by base classes.
I don't understand why a zip file makes this easier (especially the "update selectively" part).
