We do control the CDN. We can also start to move systems with a new apt
to a HTTP redirect-based mirror network using HTTPS only. This could
become the default, and new mirrors can add themselves when they're
ready, and as stable ages out, so does our use of HTTP. Or whatever.

Sounds like a great starting point :)
