As a mirror that pulls from a different IP than content is served from, I would prefer password based ACLs.  I believe this would allow more flexibility, and less ongoing management for the CentOS team.  While abuse is possible, I would hope we are all professional enough not to leak our authentication information.  Initial abuse could result in a warning and password change, with continued abuse removing the offending mirror sites privileges.
