For example, it allows Debian to add nodes to security.debian.org even
if those nodes have not got adequate connectivity to all Debian users.

Being more picky about mirror selection is hardly a solution because
every prospective mirror operator claims that they've got a top-notch
network, open peering policy and all, and then some ugly congestion
issue rears its head. 8-(
