Can we measure the (de)centralisedness of the Internet with RIPE Atlas?

We are looking into how RIPE Atlas probes in networks with the majority of end-users for a given country. We measure the path between them and infer if these networks are directly connected or not. With this information we can estimate how centralised the Internet is for a given country (in terms of who has access to user2user IP communication channels) This can be useful information for people who want to develop a more decentralised internet.
