One problem is that, according to all HTTP/1.0 drafts, you can't have
more than one Content-Encoding per document.  It only appears in
HTTP/1.1.  But maybe it isn't that important.

Another minor nit I have is that you're abusing the intent of
Content-Encoding.  Tar-ing and Bundle-ing of documents aren't strictly
speaking encodings.  Says the draft for HTTP/1.1:

  Content-Encoding may be used to indicate any additional content codings
  applied to the type, usually for the purpose of data compression, that
  are a property of the resource requested.
