ZNG Compression Types

This document specifies values for the <format> byte of a ZNG compressed value message block and the corresponding algorithms for the <compressed payload> byte sequence.

As new compression algorithms are specified, they will be documented here without any need to change the ZNG specification.

Of the 256 possible values for the <format> byte, only type 0 is currently defined and specifies that <compressed payload> contains an LZ4 block.
