LGTM, but I wonder if it's possible to have AWSDNS/Route53 to do the resolution for the clients since we are already using it?

We're using route53 for portsnap right now; not for freebsd-update. But yes, I'll be looking into adjusting the existing portsnap DNS records to send traffic to these -- at very least in place of the old portsnap mirrors I've had in EC2 for many years.
