It's not about if we would but if we could.

Would ftp.aq.debian.org be available from anywhere we could use it. You
already explained that ex. (just theoretical name) ftp.azure.debian.org
wouldn't be available from outside Azure, so we couldn't use it.

That's the difference and that's why I'm against having Azure assigned DNS
record in the d.o domain.

If it can be integrated with httpredir.d.o as Martin wrote it'd be transparent
and I think that in such case hostname won't matter as much.
