You're right -- these are normal issues that any multi-homed AS might
see. The effectiveness of knuckle-rapping after the fact is not
necessarily great, however, with respect to service uptime.
because they are a) anycast b) root-servers?
Anybody who cares about their service availability might think around
the subject and take appropriate steps to mitigate or avoid leaks.
Alternatively, they might well consider the cure worse than the
disease, and live with the occasional leak instead.
I think there is sound, logical reasoning that can result in both
conclusions, depending on the peculiarities of the service in general
and the habits of local peers in particular (with a dash of personal
preference and a sprinkling of past experience). It's the thinking
part that is important.
Diversity in approach is good, especially in the delivery of a
single, critical service.
