I agree.  Since the point of the multiple mirrors is "to use a mirror close
to you", then the location should be in the name.

Also, "ftp.us.debian.org" should be set up with IP addresses of all the
ftp sites in the us, thus rotating among them in a fairly even matter.
This way, it will even the general load among all mirrors and still allow
people who know where they want to go to get there directly.

      Management should work for the engineers, not the other way around.
