If you're downloading from some author's personal site, there's not really any good reason for them to use RAR instead of ZIP -- support for the latter is built into every modern operating system, while they need to go download a third-party utility to open RAR files. The small difference in the size of the final file just isn't enough to justify the hassle for the average WoW addon user.
I thought WoWI supported RAR I know i've accidently uploaded a few of my addons in rar files from time to time.
