Its got nothing to do with FOSS, its got everything to do with not 
putting in a situation where they have broken installs and/or not 
manageable machine instances.

we do try quite hard, within the CentOS ecosystem, to not put people in 
that situation.

Another way of looking at the same thing : our mirror seeding, 
management and release process isnt handling the 4500 or so external 
mirrors very well at this time. Mirror Management setup Ver3 should help 
with that to some level. Better education and more content available for 
mirror admins should also help ( we do have rather low levels of content 
covering that side of things in the wiki at the moment - you are most 
welcome to join and help )
