What would this achieve?

Size of my mission file :

5,262,410 bytes ( 5.01MB )

Size of my mission file after turning it into a PBO :

5,280,044 bytes ( 5.03MB )

So smaller size is out of the question. Is it so people can't snoop through your files? If anyone knows what they are looking at in your un-pbo'd files, they would also know how to use a PBO manager so anti-theft is also out of the question.
 
You keep the name of the mission the same in your config file. If you want them to download a PDF then pack your mission into a PPO in that will be downloaded and the folder will be ignored. The file size is the same I think it's unpacked before it is sent to the playersyou
 
The benefits of having a PPO for the players to download is that you can edit the folder mission while the game is running and then repack the PBO for the next start
