Well, US sites need to be able to exclude the non-US images at the very
least, but I don't suppose there are many of the potential users of this
that actually want to carry all the images, so it would be good to be
able to exclude various combinations of image.

The other thing that is likely to happen (I should be able to sort it
out soon) is that cdimage will actually be a CNAME for raff.d.o and
non-us.cdimage.debian.org will point at open.

raff is in the USA, so cannot carry the non-US CDs.  It can however
carry the non-US jigdo images, since they have no non-US data other than
the package names and checksums in them.  This may make the explanation
a bit more complicated.
