Well, that so far is an assertion without reasoning behind it though.
At least for all I know, the tables could easily be smaller than the
code to generate them after compression in many cases.
It also raises the question which scenario exactly you are thinking of
that you would consider distribution of (at my random guess) a few 100 kB of
extra data painful...
