Partial service recovery is indeed a very important concept - but that 
wasn't what the previous commenter was asking about, AFAICT.  His 
analogy wasn't a valid one, IMHO.

What we tend to see in terms of partial service recovery is things like 
D/RTBH, disablement of various services, and, in extreme cases, 
withdrawal of prefixes.  That doesn't really apply to the anycast nature 
of the roots.
