well Peter, ONE root server operator has that practice. Others
have different practices regarding anycast.
And there are many, with many TLD's.
Note: There is cross servicing of TLDs counted above.
Some numbers may seem low since there seems to be some bit of
obfuscation. Or perhaps not and I just haven't confirmed.
Some are anycasted, some appear to be physical separations, and some
appear to be nested and anycasted i.e. multiple names for the same domain
I think naming is a bad choice because it's costly to the users and opens
the root up to custom configuration by customers which I think is bad.
Tagging the route with a community containing the ISO corresponding country
could be interesting for location purposes, but of course, that's already
been thought of. :)
