And IMO should not!

There are much better ways of doing this compression (thru servlet 
filtering or apache 2.0 module chaining)

I haven't used it myself, but if I had to do it I would use servlet 
filtering instead of patching cocoon. cocoon's concern is to create 
output, http compression is part of the transport so it should be 
somebody else's concern to modify the output to reshape it to improve 
the transport.
