Having said that, it would also be easy/nice to get server space in

Ha ha, only serious.
I think that it's always best to have everything
multiple locations in case of a disaster, natural or otherwise (this
way, we won't have to worry about Wikipedia in hurricanes, and if one
location gets broken into/burns down/explodes/disappears mysteriously
in a puff of steam, Wikipedia will not have problems because of it).
