I would like to be able to store zip files in ArcGIS Online AS zip files.  I would like to do this so I could have zip files for people to download off of ArcGIS Hub.  For example, I have a bunch of traffic count spreadsheets that are packaged into a zipped folder.  I would have liked to put this on Hub for people to download but I can't because ArcGIS Online will unzip this file when it's added as an item.  So, I would request that there be some type of option to add a zip file and keep it as a zip file in ArcGIS Online.

I'd like to do the same.  I see that I can upload a zip as a "Desktop application template" and share it for others to download.  So it seems to accomplish what I need but it doesn't feel quite right.  Other than the possible confusion(which would be avoided by having a generic "Zip File" item type), could there be a problem doing this?
