I wrote up the below-referenced draft to document some measurement aspects of L-Root.
No doubt there are typos, errors, ambiguity and related horrors in the text which could be improved. If you have a few spare minutes and don't mind giving me a review, I'd appreciate it.
(apologies if you get some form of this e-mail in multiple places due to overlapping list subscriptions)

> Anycast is a deployment technique commonly employed for
> authoritative-only servers in the Domain Name System (DNS). L-Root,
> one of the thirteen root servers, is deployed in this fashion.
> Various techniques have been used to map deployed anycast
> infrastructure externally, i.e. without reference to inside knowledge
> about where and how such infrastructure has been deployed.
> Motivations for performing such measurement exercises include
> operational troubleshooting and infrastructure risk assessment. In
> the specific case of L-Root, the ability to measure and map anycast
> infrastructure using the techniques mentioned in this document is
> provided for reasons of operational transparency.
> This document describes all facilities deployed at L-Root to
> facilitate mapping of its infrastructure and serves as documentation
> for L-Root as a measurable service.
