Thanks. After analysis, that's almost exactly what I'm going to do.  Actually, I've going to write a plugin to manage it, but yeah.

In my limited experience with CDN integration the best solution would be to
create a new function that replaces all those references to your local
server (i.e. bloginfo('stylesheet_directory')
or bloginfo('template_directory') ), like cdn_url().

That function could be controlled through a file or custom admin panel to
direct traffic to the CDN URI.

If you're talking about syncing the assets between your server and the CDN,
good luck.
