Perhaps the Apache documentation?

http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/en/mod/mod_mime.html#contentencoding

In particular, it says:

  By using more than one file extension (see section above about
  multiple file extensions), you can indicate that a file is of a
  particular type, and also has a particular encoding.

You can read "file" in the above paragraph, not "transfer". Note that
here, the compression is not added by Apache, it is part of the file
on the file system.
