This wouldn't be a good idea since getting redirected to two different mirrors during one install attempt would likely confuse most existing scripts if versions were slightly out of sync.
As for uptime scanning, I can add sensors for this to the PSF's existing Pingdom account and you could use their API in the same way as http://ispypiup.com/. That would give some basic site-indpendence since Pingdom has check servers all over the world (we currently require 6 sites to be in agreement before a downtime alert is issued). If this interests you, let me know :-)
