I've heard that the earth is only 6000 years old. It pays to check
your sources (and when posting here, cite them).

Why do you believe it's not already done?

Any compression is server-dependent. If the server doesn't support it,
there's no sense in a client doing anything.

Anything sent over the wire is already optimized, for example only
sending diffs instead of whole files.
