I've been out of town so just had a look at the current structure and see what 
you mean. Since June 25 my systems are using only cloudflare mirrors. There is 
now 5 physical mirrors total in a DNS round robin on different subnets but in 
the same data center. If they're using a clustered/NFS/shared/cached file system 
if any client is out of sync every client will be out of sync at the same time 
even if they use an atomic file transfer (somewhat like what rsync does). If 
they're not using any kind of shared file system and also not using some kind of 
atomic file transfer then there will still be issues.

So far, though, it has been working perfectly here. With only 5 servers though I 
don't think that will last if they start showing up in mirrors.dat.
