Subject tar.Z files

I have a  simple  question .
Why do we carry  tar.gz and  tar.Z versions  at the  same time?

I   think  carry  tar.gz is  enough. tar.Z's  are taking
bandwith and  disk  space.

wuftpd  supports  on the  fly  translation  from .tar.gz to
tar.Z, if  there  are people  who still can not handle  tar.gz.

Can we move away  from .Z files ?
