Afraid I can't help with the immediate cleanup (a-travelling this
week), but longer-term I'd love to get something sorted for vocab
namespace mirroring.

I'm guessing the essentials will be covered by a handful of static
docs - and I don't expect they get that much bandwidth hammer. So what
about a little cron job (wget?) for these things, and if the vocab
maintainer's site is compromised for whatever reason, they can tweak
DNS and have the substitute in place while things get sorted. Mirror
listing could go on a Wiki (ESW?), along perhaps with comprehensive
details of attacks experienced (ok danbri, a quick text note with
salient points).
