I thought the discussion was about two things:

* getting something DSA supported based off cloudfront

* Getting that to be part of deb.debian.org.

I agree that deb.debian.org is about a reasonable default for all users.

I happen to also think that the cdn-specific alias will be a public
interface tat least in the case of cloudfront that some users will want
to use.
