Even if they are frequently updated, they are still static assets. And can be cached (may be for lesser time period); consequent requests will have lower latency.
Cloudfront also uses Amazon’s backbone network to reach the origin. If we have already decided to replicate the bucket in us-east-1, if CloudFront is giving latency to users in North America even in this case, then CloudFront needs improvement, it defeats it’s purpose. Adding another hop with global accelerator is not going to help.
