npm already supports all of that except the bittorrent bit, with the proper configuration, and without requiring that idiosyncratic namespace convention.

Most people complaining here just don't want their site to go down, so they should vendor or fork all their deps and run their own registry to support that. Downstream users of public modules can either go through npmjs or perform the same vendoring and forking work themselves.
