Perhaps suggest it to the mirrors but not a make it a requirement.
kernel.org already has debian for http but it is not like that, and some
mirrors may want to use a server on an alternate port so as not to
conflict with their existing web server.
I would much rather have a large selection of mirrors that support
http/1.1 (range header most vitally) then to have a smaller set because we
were too restrictive.
Deity will be using a mirror list so I don't think many people will mind
if the mirrors are different.. (and dselect doesn't even support http)
