Looking at these attacks, F in particular, if my memory serves me correct, there are 35 f-root anycast nodes deployed. Maybe this helped in some respect.
Dave Knight's lightning talk in Toronto seemed to indicate that F's anycast platform did a good job at sinking the bulk of the attack traffic in Seoul and Beijing, and that the spill-over from the region was mopped up easily by the very large nodes in California. Most other locations that have a local F-root server saw very little impact.
Isolation of attack traffic seems like a big help to me.
Then again, I like to see what kind of analysis comes out from the collected data.
