[Catalog-sig] Proposal: Additional PyPI Mirror DNS aliases

Currently there is one DNS name called last.pypi.python.org where the last mirror in alphabetical order is returned.
I think that it would be very useful to provide an additional 2 DNS names.
random.pypi.python.org - This would just be a round robin to all of the mirrors, the goal being to (theoretically) evenly distributing the incoming requests among them.
fresh.pypi.python.org - This would point towards the mirror that last synchronized with PyPI. The goal being that people can use this to have a higher chance of having all of the packages synced with PyPI (since the other mirrors have had a longer time since sync, they will have a larger window for having missed packages/versions).
