you mean per ip

mirror.centos.org has address

avoiding dns. yes, it would be possible, but how reliable it is?

I realise that the name based mirrorlist has the same problem with ip
adresses going stale eventually.

The problem is that firewall is acting on ip adresses but mirrorlist is
spitting out names. So what I did recently is periodically resolve the
ips and update the firewall rules with the new ip list hoping that not
all of them are stale until the next reload of firewall.
