That's the key. And we had a posting from Joe Alewin that was most informative on this topic.

For an example of a non-discriminatory mirror, consider the many ISPs which provide general HTTP caching services through Squid. Whether as a transparent or voluntary proxy, the goal of these caches is to improve content availability and transfer speed, while reducing bandwidth costs.
That's the best example we have, I think.
