I have built up a fine-grained mirroring script over time which not only
selects the architecture but also the version (stable, testing etc) to be
mirrored.  Unfortunately this script will require ftp/http access
to ../debian-all.  Is there any reason to restrict access
to ../debian-all to rsync?

It looks like nobody else responded to your message, so I will. (IANADD)
Allowing http or ftp access to ftp.debian.org/debian-all is somewhat dangerous. Anybody blindly mirroring ALL of ftp.debian.org via http or ftp would end up with
two copies of the major architectures.

However, doing that is a stupid thing anyway, and Debian has no obligation to protect fools who do that.
