compression only in one direction

I know that it is possible to enable or disable compression.
I just learned that the protocol would allow for one-way negotiations for things like how to encrypt the traffic, hash it, compress it.

Many people have very asymmetric internet access bandwidth.
e.g. 1 mb download, only 100 kb upload

Would it not be useful to be able to compress only outbound traffic in such a situation?
Kind Regards, Markus "just wondering"
