There is no such method. But of course we can add it if there is a reason to.

Use case: Drag some file from the archive opened in Ark, drop it to another application (e.g. Kate), effectively opening the file. The application needs to know the list of files to open after their extraction. I know one can use Open with... in Ark itself, but D&D may be more natural for some users, especially considering that (AFAIK) Windows can do this with WinRar.

That would be cool. Are you trying to implement this feature?
