RAR files used to be accepted. They are no longer accepted, because the WoWInterface Minion does not (and other addon updater programs generally do not) support the RAR format. There's no real advantage to using RAR over ZIP for an addon package, so there's no real reason to make the updater program more complicated by supporting other formats. Plus, only supporting ZIP also means the site could simplify things like server-side malware checks, since they no longer need extra code/libraries/programs to check for and handle other formats.
