Probably much less so, after this thread.

Some questions occur to me.
Anycast is already widespread. Why not just encourage its further
deployment, rather than promote a less-well-established method to
achieve the same, desirable (IMHO), 'glocal' effect?
[ 'Wizards need the fun^H^H^Hpractice' would be a sufficient reason,
but if that's it, we should be honest about it. 8-) ]
Is there some tipping point in the scaling of either method which
constrains its applicability, and so favours the other?
Is there perhaps a 'diversity dividend'?
Have a good week-end.
