Back to the threat model, then :)

One of the main Tails use-case we've heard of is to work on stuff that
is public, or will become public soon: in this case, what they want to
hide is not really the actual content, but instead its linkage to
particular physical locations or hardware. In this case, finding out
the computer's MAC / IP addresses is not the least of their problems.

I hope this clarifies things a bit.
