Maybe a idea,
Why not choose the least busy ones,
Say there are 100 mirrors, 5 are busy and 5 almost unused
Isn't it a better idea to let the 5 busy and the 5 unbusy pull from centos.org
And have the other 90 pull from the 5 unbusy?
That should even the load better.

I recommend my mirror (mirror.roelf.org), i'm the only one pulling data from it, i've got bandwith enough.
And i sync to centos.org.
