Actually, when I asked "is this even desirable", I meant does
gnupg.org even want web mirrors floating around? I realize there
must be a distinction between web mirrors and ftp mirrors within
the same region.
As to your question, I would think (1) works best, especially
with DNS for .gnupg.org and above in one place. A reference to
www.xx.gnupg.org is merely a preference for xx, but failing its
presence, using www.gnupg.org makes the most sense to me.
