It is of course possible to construct networks through which TCP

that TCP is fundamentally incompatible with anycast.
It does mean that if people want to anycast services that run over
TCP (even just a small part of the time, such as DNS) they should
make sure this works well.
A good start is using different AS numbers for the anycast instances
so (Cisco) routers won't load balance over the different paths.
But all of this is irrelevant to the discussion at hand, unless I
missed something big and DNS over TCP has now been deprecated. If
that's the case, the appropriate action is to disable TCP queries in
the software, not to avoid TCP queries by keeping response sizes small.
But my original point was that you won't go over the non-EDNS0 limit
for normal queries with less than a dozen AAAA records anyway.
