alas, our service predates Joe’s marvelous text.

“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 :-)


        No apology needed.  I was clarifying why "B" is listed as a local node.
        That it doesn't fit you taxonomy is fine - but it does need an explaination.
