  The point is it probably would not be as accurate as one could 
  hope because internet network infrastructure is network-centric 
  and not necessarily region-based. Of course you could try to fully 
  map INET like CAIDA does and keep the info updated on "daily 
  basis", pretty hard work though...

You miss the point; what they have done is decouple the requirement 
for correlation to a geographical location in optimizing content 
delivery; the only thing they seem to care about is logical 
topographical location.

As for the 'pretty hard work' part; they seem to be making money off 
it; how's your gig going?
