I wonder if Microsoft would take issue with storing these files that they have removed from their own servers.

MS support for XP is supposed to last till 2014 if they remove the files then they must no longer be needed. Does anyone know if AutoUpdate still downloads those files. If it does, we can parse the update link and get the hidden download urls.

could someone post additional hash sums for safety?

In the next version of AP you will have the ability to add files to be downloaded without removing the ability to download things from site.
To get the hash files just use an md5 tool... there are plenty of them. So download the file you want... then md5 it.
