I don't know what you mean by "their users" but if it is say a university then they can make it available in their LAN when they have the bits and not to the entire world for initial few days before the announcement.

 What? You're expecting every mirror to reconfigure special access rules
based on IP ranges or domain names just because you want to torrent ISOs
early? How is that at all practical or sensible?
You misunderstood.  See above.

No, I didn't. That comment still applies *exactly the same*. And if you
don't understand that, I'm not sure why I'm having this discussion.

I don't understand your point. Setting up local access without giving world access is pretty simple for any well configured LAN. Every major organization already has such access rules setup for stuff they don't want the world to know. We aren't forcing everyone to do that. If they want to give their users a local mirror that's a choice for them. How is that *not sensible*?
