Thats not the point. Having vfs archive modules means that you can use
all nautilus features on archives without any changes to nautilus code.
Consistency is good.

If you create vfs methods for all those formats, you can use simple
gnome-vfs api in all applications. For example future file selection
dialog would have ability to open files directly from archives. And
File-Roller could also use those methods to open and manipulate
archives. This is the point of using vfs for archives handling. Code for
archive handling in one place: vfs.
