Amazon announces new CloudFront locations but it needs Origin Shield

Amazon today announced the launch of a new Amazon CloudFront edge location in Atlanta, GA. They have also recently added third edge locations in London, UK and Frankfurt, Germany to provide even better service.

This is good but what we really need is Origin Shield functionality, i.e. CloudFront location(s), typically closest to the origin, which all edge locations use to retrieve content rather than all CloudFront locations talking to the origin. This will significantly reduce requests to the origin and speed up requests.
