Hmm, what exactly is the benefit?
Sourcing a file from a git repo on Salsa seems reasonable to me, given that
we have revision tracking there, which would be a good basis for debugging
d-i's mirror list in case of problems or questions...

Having deb.debian.org at the top would be an improvement, as well as having 
ftp.CC.d.o next to it.
However, the difference is only marginal IMHO ...
