That is true, although distributed route-servers that serve specific region 
may be easier dealing with emergencies (i.e. local POP(s) having emergency
situation etc)

But balance that with keep the path from filter list to route-server 
short too - because if you need to adjust a filter list in response 
to a network (or utility) emergency, you want to make sure the data 
is available.

(Based on experience with a project researching DDOS response.  We 
relied on certificates distributed by a DNS server.  When the flood 
was released, accessing DNS became impossible - the security system 
drowned in the flood.)
