I'm not sure that's the right idea.  For example, I can multihome  
just fine with my ISP assigned block but I can't deploy an inter-as  
anycast system with it.  Why should I abuse the micro-allocation or / 
22 end-user multihoming policy just to meet an anycast /24 policy?

Or perhaps I misunderstood you.
