I would use an I2 master if it were available.

My institution (and I expect many others, too) has more I2 bandwidth than 
commodity bandwidth, and (because of the pricing structure) nobody here 
cares how much traffic we push over the I2 link.

We might as well put these connections to good use. :)

Has anyone ever considered adding a field to the mirror list to specify if 
a mirror has I2 (or NLR/Canarie/Geant/etc) connectivity? Would an IPv6 
flag be worth considering?
