That is not universal reality with North American networks at least.
In the real there are interconnection points within 2000 km or so from
well-connected locations for good reasons: it helps robustness, keeps
speed of light delays in check and it's usually cheaper. So why not
optimize for this, at least in the absense of something that is better
in al regards?
I also have found it not to be the case with some commercial networks
in Europe and Asia/Pacific.
My main objection to so-called "geographic addressing" is that it is
not congruent with the actual network topology.
