Seth, I believe you are right on target here.

The only other thing I can think of is some kind of central augmentation of 
the mirror list which would reflect the sync status as well as somewhat rank 
the servers in terms of capabilities (a big server attached to an OC48 can 
take a lot bigger load than a small server on a T1).  This sounds good but I 
am not sure it is do-able.
