I had some thought regarding the fact that a given primary mirror may
not provide a full mirror (i.e not all architectures). While a secondary
mirror may provide the missing architecture.

Has there been some thought to provide some mirror whose DNS name would
be :
 ftp.i386.fr.debian.org/debian/ or ftp.fr-i386.debian.org/debian/
So distinct architecture could point to different mirror.

... That's just a random idea. Especially, I understand that it might be
difficult to get the apache's "ServerAlias" updated on each mirror, when
a new architecture is made available.
