Maybe _start_ by saying "The system is content-neutral. By this we
mean..." and then make the point about popularity not being a factor, and
how nodes agree to accept data possibly against their operator's

accountability sounds more like cleaning up after the damage an 
evil node has done, and tying the damage to a specific node. Does
"robustness" fit the notion of limiting damage from evil nodes?

Then you could add "accountability" (or "audit capability" or
"verifiability" ) as the criterion which says even that limited
damage gets tied back to the evil node.
