With Nautilus 3.22 I've found usability loss too, because adding
context-menu actions is not so easy as before (through MIME).

Before this version, only by installing .desktop launchers that
associate MIME types, user had more direct actions in context submenu
"Open with...".
Some of my projects like Matromu, xhash, Ribildor and Refafit are
affected by this usability issue.

The "open with..." Actiob was not removed. Instead it was changed from a submenu into a dialog, which provides more options and allows searching for the app by typing.

In a package installation, how it's supposed be added context menu
actions at same level as "Compress" or "Extract here" 

Those used to be added by a nautilus extension provided by file-roller.

I don't know if Debian shipped that extension in thefile-roller package or as a separate package.

The compress action was removed from that extension because it duplicated the new compress action which is now built-in.

I guess you could workaround this by installing an older version of the file-roller extension, or reverting that git commit which removed the compress action and compiling it from source.

The safe way, though, is to open file-roller directly, although not as convenient. Or Nautilu scripts.
