I've seen that with clients.  It seems like there's a promised anycast
land, out where Akamai is (where you really do have "local" nearly
everywhere globally, so even strange routing foo doesn't mismatch the
path too badly).

No Akamai traffic is directed via anycast.

Some of the name server IP addresses are anycasted, but that is for redundancy / capacity / name resolution 
performance, not to direct end users to web servers.

Sorry, didn't mean to imply that.  It was suggested in the dark past
that Akamai could or should do that; they didn't.

It was tangental to the point I was making and I simplified wrongly.
