I ran into this problem, and made an "OTP patch" for it:

(Don't think I ever submitted it as a patch, since Håkan and I disagreed on some of the implementation details).

I wrote: "The idea (see http://github.com/esl/run_eqc) was that it should be possible to deliver an application as a single archive, supporting command-line operations, interactive code loading, and compilation including hrl files, parse_transforms etc., without having to unpack the archive."
