Sure, though it's probably getting to be not worth our respective time...

I want to know if CDN B serves site X.  I configure site Y as an origin
for my own site behind CDN B and observe what CDN-Loop header values I
receive at Y.  I make a request to site X twice, once with that CDN-Loop
header and once without.  If they give the same response, I conclude that X
does not use CDN B.  If the request with CDN-Loop header doesn't get
content back, I conclude that X uses CDN B.
