I dunno, an RSS type feed of bittorrent files which can be subscribed
to would be useful. You could then just subscribe to certain content,
implictly trusting that they're publishing sensible content (and filtering
the content you seed your torrent with using tags or some such.)

You could then subscribe to various projects' downloads and mirror
appropriately.

Of course, this could already be being done; I haven't any idea. :)
