I'm not sure that nodes just going catatonic periodically is a behaviour to
encourage. Throttling traffic is something more predictable.

I understand the anonymizing services population is bimodal: you've got some
few really stable nodes, and lots of ephemeral ones. While a network should
be able to handle lots of coming and going, the stable nodes are important.

Does Tor make a distinction between stable and ephemeral nodes? (Trust
metric, if not agoric load levelling).
