 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.
I did not "miss the point". I just pointed that such data would not
be same as geographic location. That akamai does not need geo data
specifcally for their application setup is another matter entirely.
