Hello Luca, all,
http://cloudfront.debian.net/ is continuing to do some traffic. It is also offering CDN acceleration for debian-cd and cdimage. We set up a second CDN distribution, http://cloudfront-security.debian.net/; however at this point in time CloudFront does not support IPv6. CloudFront now has 51 edge locations worldwide (having added Rio de Janerio, Taipei, Manila, Marseille and Warsaw recently) and supports custom SSL certificates if (Debian) want to do this.
Using the Debian http redirection service at http://http.debian.net/ is perhaps a preferred approach as it allows real time redirection to the desired CDN service.
I'm happy to give any DD access to the AWS account that is running this; please mail me (gpg signed) off list.
As to lock in - CloudFront is an http cache network - stop handing out the cloudfront.debian.net URL and traffic naturally drops off; nothing else do to.
