	I am certain that there are people at many backbones who
	are currently planning out how to do exactly this.

	So, even if the Keynote results can be contrived to have
	any validity now, such validity will be diminished in a
	very short order by such techniques as distributed mirrors,
	"intrusive" cacheing, and probably a lot of things that
	most of us have never really thought about before this.
