I disagree.  There will be changes in texlive.tlpdb each day we update a
package (that is, probably every day).  If the content of one mirror's archive
for a package doesn't match what is described in another mirror's
texlive.tlpdb file for this package, what is going to happen?

And in theory, there should be no difference between theory and practice :-)
