I don't think this is a valid case for an exception.

I understand how this could be frustrating, but the base64

TGM (or similar) is the recommended approach. It does provide a
well-integrated and fairly seamless/painless user experience for installing
recommended Plugins.

Great looking Theme, by the way!
