Our download pages are created by CGI scripts that already selects the
user's closest mirror (based on IP number and some GeoIP database) and
recommend a few others, so I don't think we'd ebenefit from the
metalinks link at all.  In particular since the list of ASF mirrors is
maintained centrally.

I'm not sure whether I understood the description of "getting the
checksums from a single source" in the links you posted correctly.  We
wouldn't want users to trust any signatures or checksums downloaded from
anywhere but the central ASF site and thus our download page explicitly
sends users to the main site only for those sort of files.
