Me was referring to unattended background downloads of data files
(configuration- files, data files, text files).

Concerns along the lines "What puts mock into a special position" that
it is allowed to automatically pull *config* files unsupervised from a
remote location:

Wrt. this, I don't see how mock is any different from
* applications contacting a remote counter each time they start up.
* games loading their game data from a remote file.
* applications dynamically installing plug ins from remote.
...

Another concern are usability (fedoraproject.org bottlenecking mock),
and security.
