Mmmh... you're right. We've got two ways out here IMO.
1. Unexistent www.xx.gnupg.org points to www.gnupg.org
2. A look-up for www.xx.gnupg.org returns "server doesn't exist" error.
Which one is the best? Number 2 maybe?

Well, Werner's running the DNS server and he has to make a decision. Do
you think that a central management of xx.gnupg.org names would require
a lot of effort?
PS: Werner, could you hand me the e-mail addresses of mirror admins?
I'm going to send them an e-mail on this topic by the end of the week..
