It's possible to do given a browser that supports some of the HTML 5
extensions for specifying multiple-file upload support (or using a Flash
widget as a compatibility fallback), but I don't think there's an
implementation as a MediaWiki extension right now.

Bugzilla entries for core:

and UploadWizard: https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=26502

MultiUpload extension would probably need changes to make the association
between files and titles/descriptions clear, with the fields done totally
differently.
