It depends on the provider, and what you mean by "infrastructure".  Many cases
fall into a grey area between your options:

- AWS: the mirror will be a CloudFront distribution.  SPI will own the account,
  the cloud team will create the CDN, but the infrastructure will be AWS.
- Azure, Infomaniak: they contract or employ folks to run mirrors for them.
  Cloud team folks are responsible in both cases.

Speaking for myself only, I'd be be open to providing a name for a provider
that doesn't work with us, and runs their own mirror.  This would definitely
not meet your requirement.

Great, thanks for the offer - we haven't settled on any mechanisms, but will
keep this in mind.
