[CentOS-mirror] New Mirror Request

We would like to host a mirror for CentOS.  Earlier, we used to have our own
CentOS repository for all the 5, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 versions, so that we could do
a local yum.  We used to run the following daily at 2200hrs UTC:

rsync -v -aH --progress --bwlimit=3072

Now, after going through the Public Mirror How-To, we ran the following:

rsync -v -aH --progress --delete --bwlimit=3072 msync.centos.org::CentOS

And, we found that it deleted all files we had for 5, 5.2 and 5.3.  So, we
did another rsync with "mirrors.kernel.org", and then did another rsync with
"msync.centos.org" but this time without the "--delete" flag.  So, now we
also have all the ISOs available at "mirrors.kernel.org".

Is it ok to run the rsync without the "--delete" flag?

Our mirrors can be reached at: http://mirrors.ispros.com.bd/centos
We are located in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
Cron job runs twice a day at 0900 and 2100hrs UTC.
Our uplink for this mirror will be dynamically allocated between 5 - 50
Mbps, depending on our network load.  Is that acceptable?

Is it also possible to have our name as one of the possible resolutions
against yum updates?

We apologize beforehand if some of the questions above sound a bit too
naive.  This is the first time we are hosting officially for CentOS.
