Of course, creating a zip file by yourself is no problem. It just comes
down to lazyness: Do I want to manually zip and unzip a file every time
bevor I use it? Even a script is not really convenient.

It is *much* more convenient if this could be done by Scribus in the
background, just as it is done with .odt or .docx files. If speed/size
is an issue, you could always give the option to save it the current
way, uncompressed and in a folder.
