With the current structure of mirrors, we already rely on 3rd parties
with whatever policy they have. I don't think Andrew is actually
suggesting to move the main site or main mirrors over there.

Personally, I would do everything to avoid these services, especially
since they regularly block Tor users, centralize the Internet, often
provide bad SSL gateways (with changing certs etc), and I hate to have
to allow active content coming from some generic CDN. I am clearly
against using commercial CDNs for anything, but if someone wants to run
a mirror there, and even if that someone happens to be Andrew, I can't
really argue against it. It might actually allow some users to reach a
mirror for which other mirrors are blocked.
