Just to be clear: I was referring to the EXIT traffic
from the last node out into the internet, which is (of
course) unencrypted. I don't see what information
about tor itself could be obtained there.

Well, I don't know about the US and I would not claim
to do so. However, in Germany and probably in other
European countries, it is illegal because you are
acting as a kind of telecommunication provider and are
therefore not allowed to read the personal data you
are transmitting. (At least that's my understanding,
not being a lawyer and all that.)  European data
protection laws are much stricter that the US ones,
although they are working on that...
