We do not alias or rename mirrors and will not do so.  It would break existing 

Mirrors become unavailable for a variety of reasons, including technical issues 
or the maintainer's unwillingness to continue to provide service.  We do not 
always have control over this, as is the case in IL.PHP.NET.

Aside from perhaps a few broken links, there is absolutely no good reason to 
change an operational mirror just to remove the '2' from its CNAME.

You do not necessarily need to rename il2->il (as this might also break some 
links / bookmarks - i totally agree...
il CNAME does not exist right now in the zone
You can simply add a new CNAME to point to same address, will this break 

when people type in an address into their addressbar, they will have a hard time 
guessing they need to add a number after their country code

IMHO every country you put a mirror in deserves to have a <country-code> 
CNAME as a main mirror OR (better) a dynamic one being a fastest / least heavy 
loaded one...

The problem with that solution is - and this is not your fault by any means - you 
don't know how it works on the backend.  Believe it or not, yes, it can cause 
issues, at least in its present state.  It's an imperfect system, and certainly 
is a work in progress, but the changes you're suggesting simply cannot and will 
not be employed at this time.  However, your other bug report about IL2 being 
slow is resulting in action.

Thank you for your suggestions and reports.
