Sure there is: tiering. rsync access should be restricted to the
official country mirrors like it's done with the syncproxies. It
should be very easy to do because there is already a private module
with authentication that mirrors [should] use. You could just disable
the public one.

It'd also be possible to send a page to http requesters telling them
to go to a country mirror. However, since http is already redirected
to the backends, it's probably not necessary.
