Please give some specific examples of what you mean.

Debian services are already distributed across a wide range of
machines.  As for p2p ... well, "p2p concepts" is too vague to talk
about.  Debian machines already run TCP/IP, which is the original
peer-to-peer network technology.  (For some values of "original".)

I hope you aren't suggesting that the mirror network be replaced by
bittorrent.  That would suck for just about everybody.
