I came to review this as Ross pulled it into mut and I reached the same
conclusion as Olof here. We have PREMIRRORS, we can also exclude
networks from the fetcher and therefore have a ton of ways of rewriting
this already.

Yes, we do want standardisation, but all the urls look standardised to
me already. 

IMO, we want to see less of these global variables, not more. There once
was a time when they might have been useful but the fetcher is pretty
good about dealing with this now so lets not complicate this more than
we need to.
