I'm not so interested in specific legal advice, more a high level
discussion of when it is good to be a bad guy, and when you're being
bad for the sake of being good what are the ethical considerations
and, with respect to Tor (it'll differ case to case) legal
implications of doing so.

I would think this would be a perfect discussion to have in the
context of Tor, and perhaps the kind of thing the EFF could turn into
a compelling policy paper to guide the development of this and other
projects.  Further, I see this as far preferable to letting operators
develop their own best practices on an ad-hoc basis.
