“B” provides its services locally to its upstream ISPs.
We don’t play routing tricks, impose routing policy, or attempt to
influence prefix announcement.
In the taxonomy I just shared, that makes the origin nodes of B all "global nodes".
To clarify though, I certainly wasn't trying to suggest that the things I described were new or original when I was
writing in 2003. Anycast had already been in use for quite some time by a variety of people at that time.
It's specifically the terms "local" and "global" in a DNS anycast context that I was apologising for :-)
