The real problem here is that DNS doesn't update quick enough to re-route. One site I have hosted out of Canada was completely unreachable by a browser earlier today, but was pinging at about 100ms - which is horrid. Re-routing shouldn't be a problem, except wayyy too many providers get their IP from one big player - and when a cheap player like Cogent gets cut off by someone as massive as L3, there's going to be a problem.
The real problem here is that DNS doesn't update quick enough to re-route. I wondered about that, because it was design to withstand a nuclear war. While I never believed that part, it should be able to cope with this sort of nonsense.
