If you don't package the applet code in a JAR and use the ARCHIVE feature, the client has to request the applet's various class files one at a time, uncompressed, from the server. It's both tidier and more efficient to use a JAR, unless you're doing something very basic like a small one-class applet.
"privilege" comes from the Latin words for "private" and "law" (legal) and dates to feudal times. To "claim privilege" meant that you were above the laws that applied to the common people.
