As long as we limit access to master rsync server for tier-1 mirrors
only and have them syncing with master at different time intervals, I
guess that would be good enough.

I currently thing what could be the best effort worth investing time 
into -- we need a dedicated mirroring server anyways, so instead of now 
using time for tiering, I'm thinking of simply buying a new machine and 
let it do solely rsyncing.

You already have a significant number of mirrors across the world,
you're already big enough to establish tiering. Burdens of the
success :-) Postponing it will only make it worse, because you'll have
to piss off more and more mirrors.

Also, if you're going to put a new machine *only* for external rsyncs
it doesn't need to be close to the rest; a reasonable link is enough,
because it'll only be used to put the new content there. Other distros
do it already.

Finally, I offer our machine as rsync-stage. You could have an account
here and manage the content locally. It's *only* for distribution, not
for generating anything. We can withstand a big load and have
multi-gigabit connections with Europe and US, and even a good link
with current rsync-stage :-)
