On this page :
- primary actually refers to ftp.CC.d.o mirrors
- secondary refers to remaining mirrors

Definitions is unclear, since pushed mirrors which are not ftp.CC.
actually don't meet any of the definitions.

Given the current infrastructure, using ftp.CC.d.o mirrors actually
gives better guarantees than non-Debian controlled mirrors.
Indeed, Debian can modify ftp.CC.d.o DNS entry if a mirror ever fails.

However, you get a point: we should be able to distinguish pushed
mirrors which are not ftp.CC.d.o ones. (so debian-installer should).
