Well, it's convenient for end-user. At least for me :)
I do not need exactly UA mirror, I'm free to pick up any one that is
fast enough, but knowing that there are DK, EE, RU, etc is enough to
change the PKG_PATH easily. Not switching windows trying to spell
chlamidya FQDN correctly. (Well, I had no mouse support in console on
fresh install to copypaste).
Another thought is: is it possible to have some browser in base
system? console one, like links? But there could be some license or
other issues. You're better than me in this question.

Ok, I got the idea. And yes, it is almost no use for IPv6 in Kiev yet.

Well, gone reading wiki on how to setup sources.

Thanks a lot for guidance!
