I've no objections, and as I mentioned earlier there are already a 
number of other mirrors syncing directly from me.  I've got a tier2 
rsync module in place already for CentOS so this would mainly be a 
matter of populating the username/passwords for the module and getting 
those shipped off to those who request access.  That would get you 
another 4gbps (currently) and quite a bit more geographic diversity.
