Use of CF or any other CDN was not mentioned in the announcement,
whether for DNS, or HTTPS. The entire internet is NSA anyway.

If CDN for HTTPS, consider multihoming on I2P or Tor
so users can still access when CDN javascript captcha
or otherwise arbitrarily blocks them or goes down.

As to caching bandwidth and archives...

You really should fork that 335MiB mbox file off now
or no later than year end, and compress it, and
then once yearly thereafter, and sign them all.
People will eventually seed them into IPFS, etc.

Try using a modern unix compression tool like zstd,
they are faster, smaller, available for all systems...
