With this in mind, has anyone had any thoughts about updating the cache
registration service with an (optional) feature that not only reports the
cache server, but also reports the parents and neighbours (siblings) of that

If every squid cache out there not only announced it's existence, but also
announced *who* it was looking at as it's relatives, then it would probably
be possible (although non-trivial, I'm sure) to get some kind of overall
hierarchy drawn up in an automated fashion. Just think - we could have a
world map of squid caches and their relatives created! :-)

Just a thought ....
