It would be nice if Emacs could open these files in archive-mode by default, either by adding an entry for the file extension ".egg" to auto-mode-alist, or by adding a suitable pattern for ZIP files to magic-fallback-mode-alist.

(Perhaps this suggestion will become moot when libmagic is integrated into Emacs.)

I downloaded a random .egg file and it opened fine for me in the CVS
trunk (not in 23.1).
