Fat-Fingering happens all the time, as everyone on this list knows.  
Since it's trivial to set up two anycasted addresses instead of one, why 
not go ahead and do so?

And to go further, why not assign one as the first recursor and the 
other as the second recursor with ~50% of any endpoints under one's own 
span of control, and then reverse the order for the other 50%?
