A (set of) central box(es) is the best we can get deployed quickly.
As a matter of fact it is deployed already in Europe.
Once can always improve that but it boils down to solving 
highly distributed database problems.

There is no intention of "replacing distributed computation" 
with this. Do not confuse the Routing Registry with Route Servers.

Although the registry "box is not controlled by the service providers",
the content is! So the only thing you need is a dependable and neutral
entity to run the registry.

Of course!
