That's an interesting issue. Who is scared by a suspicious server name
and would thereupon stop using Tor? Not the absolute beginner who does
not care about log files and not the expert who knows that an attacker
needs all 3 out of 900+ routers a user chooses to subvert her privacy.
However, I assume that the NSA would rather run 10, 20, or 50 nodes with
inconspicuous names, sit back, and see what they can observe. But who
knows? Perhaps they have multiple strategies? :)
