Why Cloudinary doesn't deliver images as gzip (Content-Encoding)?

Cloudinary gzips only compressible formats. For certain formats, e.g. JPG and PNG, applying gzip compression is redundant and may not yield any gain, furthermore, sometimes it may even result in larger files.

To inspect the encoding method with which a resource is delivered, one can look for the "Content-Encoding" response header via the developer-tool.
