As I understood it, only va.debian.org was to get a (IPless) virtual host.
The rest of the mirrors would be reached by using www.<country>.berlin-consortium.org/berlin/ .
Since the Debian mirrors all have their own IP, use of those addresses should fall
right into www.<country>.debian.org/berlin/ (being the primary virtual host for the IP). 
It will be necessary to work out some DNS issues as we have CNAMEs pointing to CNAMEs.

This is much less work for everyone involved. Getting the mirrors to set up virtual hosts
is not a viable alternative. It's going to take me two weeks at least simply to get
them to turn on content negotation (still haven't heard back from two mirrors). Forget
trying to get virtual hosts set up for every project we sponsor.
