That's straightforward: Just put the new files somewhere into the tree, either in a separate directory, or just anywhere. In any case, exclude the new "bulk" stuff in our existing rsync modules as well as in the push rsync script.
Then, either create a new, separate rsync module which mirrors may be use to sync those files, if they choose to do so. Or create "variants" of the existing rsync modules, so mirrors can choose between tdf-stage and tdf-stage-plus (and tdf-pub and tdf-pub-plus), depending on whether they want the additional content or not. Likewise, the push script should be adjusted regarding mirrors which should receive the files.
This way, you control whether the files end up on mirrors, and give mirrors a choice.
That's basically all you need to do. And in the next step, it would make sense to assess on the download server how often the big files are requested, and judge from there whether mirroring is needed. Maybe no mirroring at all in the beginning; maybe one mirror in Germany and one in the US will suffice initially; maybe more mirrors are needed, if the files become popular.
Hope this helps,
