OK, so you mean for example, let www.ja.linuxdoc.org/us/
point the original LDP site, right? :-) 

I said "mirroring the local ldps is a good thing" in the
previous post, but come to think that the cost of page
mirror is not worth its usage, having read the following
Hugo's opinion:

Agree.  FYI, current ja site has about 50 Mbytes.  Assuming the
other local ldps also have comparable bytes, it's not good in
C/P mirroring them all over the world.  We already have
compressed translations in every FTP mirrors.  It should be
enough for most people, if he/she has WWW access to original
sites with FTP access to the nearest mirror.

If we don't mirror but redirect, it's not so valuable to
prepare http://www.nl.linuxdoc.org/ja/ as URI, because
http://www.ja.linuxdoc.org is much more easy to remember :-)
Rather, we should concentrate on preparing good link pages
in each local ldps?
