Perhaps not needed, but could be useful, more folks complaining generally = faster action on the part of a mirror admin (like yours truely)... although, if someone comes back from vacation to an inbox full of 300 "YOUR MIRROR IS OUTDATED" messages, they might be understandably unhappy.  
Might be nice to know as an end-user since one could switch off the mirror for a while.. mhm that part could even be made automagic.

I don't think that's really needed. We shouldn't have any consistantly
outdated mirrors, and if we do, they should be either marked as such
or removed from the mirrorlist.
