CF is willing to offer network drops over GRE / XCs too and filter 
everything apparently if the price is right.

It is a custom service, though.

Cloud flare is pretty much a cdn , people have been using cdns for years to mitigate Ddos like akaimi , wasn't really popular though because of how expensive cdns like Akamai were, btw they recently bought prolexic. Cloud flare as far as I know does not sell Ddos protection service by any other means then there web proxy/cache service. Also there core business isn't Ddos protection it's website optimization via cdn type setup.

The difference between us  , prolexic vs cloud flare is the different delivery methods allow protection against attacks towards other services and protocols besides http protocol/websites, and protection against entire networks versus an individual domain, it's just a different business model going after different market segments.
