Sorry for not having proper References:, I am not on the list and so
have to refer to the web archive which doesn't display Message-Id.

I'm afraid your definition of "down" is a bit restrictive. I believe
that e.g. mirrors.sunsite.dk will actually work for users in .dk but
not allow access to others. I'm not sure if this is a happy solution,
but the benefit of their mirroring anything at all is certainly
questionable if there will be no link to their mirror, don't you
