Dropping from mirror network vs dropping from tier-1 (was: Re: Bits (Nybbles?) from the Vancouver release team meeting)

Quoting from the Nybbles proposal:

"[...] the list of release candidate
architectures will be further split, with only the most popular ones
distributed via ftp.debian.org itself.  The criterion for being distributed
from ftp.debian.org (and its mirrors) is roughly:

- there must be a sufficient user base to justify inclusion on all
  mirrors, defined as 10% of downloads over a sampled set of mirrors

Elsewhere I believe Steve mentioned, that earlier versions had tier-1 == 
ftp.d.o, but that this was dropped (exactly because of arches like s390 who 
should be able to reach tier-1 easily, but really have no reason to be on the 
mirror network).
