Agreed. So there will just be that requirement to provide (restricted)
rsync access for your mirror to be part of httpredr.debian.org.
How else would any other software achieve a completeness check? Sure,
there is Fedora with their mirrormanager
(https://fedorahosted.org/mirrormanager/) which has the report_mirror
tool simply do a "find" on the local mirror and then back to big mama
about the files and their checksum. But that's even more complicated to
deploy in the field or rather changes the infrastructure of Debian
mirrors even more.
