I had a similar idea which goes pretty much in the same direction. However
it doesn't really touch the TER mirroring yet, but this could be added as

I'm thinking about a new extension which provides black- and whitelists in
order to let admins only install extensions which are allowed.

- Each mirror would hold a list of allowed/denied extensions (including
  version ranges)

- The server admin (with write access to localconf.php) can explicitely
  allow/deny and overrule the above suggestions. A TYPO3 site admin should
  finally have no ways to change that.

What do you think about this?

Regards, michael
