        If this were natively supported, this would be a fantastic help. The issue isn't that you can't stream a zip (that's easy). The issue I see is that if you have hundreds of GB or 1TB+ of content spread across multiple blobs, it will be difficult to stream all of this into a compressed blob. The length of time and the possibility of network interruptions (that would require a full restart of the archive process) would make this difficult without first downloading all of the content and doing it locally.
