Sure, this makes a lot of sense. Testing with the Italian version is 
reasonable because it's approximately 10% of traffic, so a perfect 
sample; the only issue I see is that 80%-90% of the downloads of the 
Italian version come from Italy, so this wouldn't be a test for the 
global mirror network.

No, every version uses a separate hostname: will only be accessed by version 3.3.

Enough to crash the web server: if I recall correctly, we 
had big troubles when all updateXY hostnames were redirected to (and the reason was determined to be very old, maybe even 
2.x, versions, sending POST requests in an uncontrolled way). But as 
Oliver wrote we can progressively extend to 3.2 and possibly to earlier 
releases too.
