Why not just originate the services from a prefix (or multiple prefixes) of your own?  Then you can pick and choose who you use where.  You still have to be careful that people don't "helpfully" backhaul stuff to places you don't want, but at least the policy lever is in your hands.

Short answer is yes, we do this for people all the time, and I'm sure many of the other large anycast providers do as well.

Renesys could probably tell you which ones, specifically.
