So you are basically saying to Tor node operators running nodes at home:
Route *all* your traffic into Tor *regardless* of its content,
or dare using the Internet without Tor and handle the privacy effect
that running a Tor relay has on you yourself?

If that is the case then I'm astonished.
I guess you and Roger have different opinions on what to send over Tor
and what not [1].

[2] Do you disagree that rekeying ones in a while + a common node
descriptor would make it harder to link tor nodes to there past IP
addresses and reduce the privacy impact of running a Tor node at home?
