There's no technical reason you couldn't implement this, the rsync for 
the site and files are unique.

I don't know if you'd still get listed as an official mirror, but I 
actually don't see why not.

On the other hand, the torproject.org web site is moderately tiny 
compared to the dist directory, so I'm idly curious why? (Just to 
understand what people are doing).
