Yes, you're right.  It turns out that the IANA folks recently
set up Varnish Cache <https://www.varnish-cache.org/> as a
HTTP reverse proxy for their web site, and they're still working
out the kinks.

For now, the compressed files may be delivered in their
uncompressed versions.  You should be able to use FTP
to access the compressed files reliably.
