I agree that it's not directly your problem, and isn't something you
have direct control over. However, if you want to round-robin the
<cc> IP addresses between different providers, I suggest
that either the name resolves to just one site, or that
adopts a policy with their mirrors that they only become part of
the <cc> DNS entries as long as they do not rewrite their
site-specific URLs in terms of that address.

Indeed. I just sent a complaint about this, and if we can figure out a decent way to test for this automatically we'll add it to our automatic tests.

There is also always ftp.
