I'd rather have the static mirror page for the reasons you mentioned. It
seems kind of... open... to have a wikified mirror page.

If someone wants to add a mirror, it's not that hard to mail one of us
and ask to have it added/removed/whatever, which amounts to the same
thing as a locked wiki page, except the non-wiki page is prettier 8)
