if Debian needs all PDF files comressed, which tools does Debian
provide to deal with them?  And why do you take care about Windows?

In TeXLive we cannot have compressed PDF files because this would
break a lot of things.  There are HTML files with links to PDF files
and there are links in PDF files to other PDF files.  The doc trees
should be browsable because not everyone is familiar with commandline
tools and texdoctk is incomplete and does not support documentation
written in any other language than English.

Compressed files will cause a lot of problems and people can't use
programs of their choice to browse documentation.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
