Coral Content distribution network - DNS/HTTP based P2P

From Gojomo - this is very cool:
To take advantage of CoralCDN, a content publisher, user, or some third party posting to a high-traffic portal, simply appends to the hostname in a URL. For example: -->

Through DNS redirection, oblivious clients with unmodified web browsers are transparently redirected to nearby Coral web caches. These caches cooperate to transfer data from nearby peers whenever possible, minimizing the load on the origin web server and possibly reducing client latency.

Wicked cool and finally a REST based scalable p2p network. I wonder how I could use that at Amazon...
