DSA's via rsync

As previously mentioned on this list, where I work, we have a sizeable 
chunk of infrastructure that can't connect out to a Debian mirror[1]

One of my colleages has written a script, which works on the 
/var/lib/dpkg/status file on a host that may require updating comparing it 
against the 
files and then generating a list along with the appropriate DSAs, of the 
packages that require updating.

This would be made easier if the DSA's were obtainable in a more parseable 
format. Currently they're being retrieved from 
http://www.debian.org/security/ via a recursive wget. Would it be 
possible, and would it be beneficial to anyone else, if they were made 
available individually via rsync?
