On the same note and this just an observation, I hear two thoughts, some
talk not using anycast and then there are others who stand their ground
about anycast deployment.

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.

Then again, I like to see what kind of analysis comes out from the
collected data.
