I'm not quite sure how you interpreted my question to be a demand that
someone change a domain name.  However, if they want to be a mirror and *IF*
their domain is widely blocked, thereby rendering the service ineffective,
they might well be willing to add an entry into their DNS, so that
mirrors.playboy.com and mirrors.playboyenterprises.com are the same place.

We could use CNAME RR so that we don't have to change our zone whenever
someone's IP changes, but Justin has explained some of the downsides.  And
it won't help if they are blocked by IP (firewall) instead of domain name
