I believe it's primarily routing...at a global node, you'd have
globally reaching transit provider(s). At a local node, the routing
advertisement has a limited topological scope. If a local node's
routing adverts disappear, the users of that node will then choose a
route to a global node.
...oh another difference might be in the load they are prepared to handle.
