You do or you dont? I dont see why anycast addresses need or need not 
be restricted to same AS.

Havnt got the time. :) Unless you have a URL or somesuch as to put me
straight as to why anycast addresses would not be suitable.

However, I'll wager that at some point a URI is translated to an IP
address, be it by client or gateway. And at that point, the mapping
can be to an anycast address.
