I guess one could argue the other way too :)

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.
