There is - if you set up a private mirror in MirrorManager, then all
requests from your netblock will be directed to said mirror. Or am I
missing something?

What you are missing is that the people sharing a proxy shouldn't have to know about each other or set anything up. All they should have to do is request the same URLs.

Why can't that happen automatically? That is, within whatever blocks geoip might consider 'near', arbitrarily select the first-choice mirror based on the source IP range in a repeatable way. That way everyone behind the same proxy requests the same URL and the caching works automatically.
