We want to write policy to be general and not have 100s of special exceptions. In this case what is special is not that it's a jar file, but that the user isn't meant to interact with it using standard compressed file tools. This is not a state unique to jar files. Even if there aren't any other known cases now, we want to write policy in a way that can apply to them in the futuer.
