It's probably worth pointing out that any OpenFlow controller worth its 
salt is fully distributed.  The primary difference with that and the 
traditional architecture is that the distribution model is not fixed to 
the physical topology.  Which one could argue, given the innate 
difficulty in building distributed systems, makes development and 
deployment of new stuff easier.
