I submitted five pages from a test site to UK AV about two weeks ago, and then to .com using the submit option that follows UK's add url section. They all went in to .com, and none into AV UK. I couldn't say about deep crawling because the pages didn't link to each other or anywhere else (as I say it was a test). Still, it confirms that AV are pretty canny about whether a site should be in UK or .com, and they got it spot on (and that was part of my test).
Submission via AVUK with the follow on link to AV.com seems to have continued working despite the Add url move. Also, Georged, interesting comments.

Trust I'm not too far off topic. We've recently submitted a UK site with a .com address via AVUK and then straight onto the normal AV addurl page. As content was "interim design" with minimal reference to fact that it was a UK site, we were very surprised to see it do so well on AVUK. It's since been buried and is now back in AVUK (also in AV.com). The conclusion out of this about a week back was that it appeared that AV (UK) wasn't as canny as we'd expected.
Perhaps things are changing. Certainly happier that AVUK relevancy has improved. But no deep crawl yet on either.
Please consider switching to the european system of differentiating between the letter o and the number zero by showing the oblique slash when it is a zero. Or will that confuse people who will look for a matching key?
