I think this would be best done by the client software not the trackers.
In seed mode there is currently no guidance as to how to send out data
in the protocol.

i collect RTT for all peers i ever connected. I think
that minimizing of RTT should bring similar results. 
When choosing peers
to send request to i can slightly improve probability of choosin peers with
lower RTT. 

i think Gnutella clients do somethig similar.
