I don't think that's a reason to omit the feature, it just needs some care and maybe not everyone can use the feature. There's plenty of goodness available by reading from a "gunzip -c" stream and only slightly less by reading from Archive::Tar::Streamed. Sometime within the last month I wrote an iterator to read file by file from a tarball using that module but without any hoops to jump through. It's all easy.
