Possible to upload zip files to Episerver?

Is it possible to upload media files of type .zip in episerver?
If yes, how should the media descriptor then look?

I tried to do the following, but upload fails in the editor:

[ContentType]
[MediaDescriptor(ExtensionString = "zip")]
public class ZipFile : MediaData
{

}

Try with a small zip to check that it's not the MaxRequestLength setting that messes up...

Normally you want to add a guid to the above as well...

I found that by removing the file extension it was possible, so I guess that's some solution, although it's not a very logical one...

[ContentType]
    public class GenericFile : MediaData
    {
    }

Hmm strange. Works well with the extensionstring with "zip" for me in a clean CMS 9 solution.
