Bzip2 compresses quite a bit more than gzip or zip, but it's also quite a bit slower. The extension is handy to let users know how to expand the archive. For gzip'd files you use gunzip, but for bzip2'd files you have to use bunzip2. I guess if the archives were never going to be used by anybody else it wouldn't matter how you named them.
