Actually, it works quite fine and it is how quite a large amount of
services are serving users around the world.

Route Flapping does not happen that often, at least not often enough
that it impacts TCP.

Getting a provider to provide an anycasted prefix though, is likely more
problematic than actually getting the code out there and running on a
significant enough number of hosts that it matters.
