Though perhaps unlikely, especially without it being publicly known,
it is possible for certain demographic cultural / religious / industry
"apps" to arise that might be using tor, and be academically identifiable.
ie: IL is 75% Jewish, presence in all other countries is
proportionally insignificant.
This sole presence of a thing in mass proportion in one place is
relatively unique.
It may be possible to aggregate other countries into sets to
identify bumps potentially relavant to their combined (yet unique
to them, and en masse therein as well) demographics.
You can probably come up with possible examples.

Unlikely the Torah suddenly went digital via tor.
More likely GeoIP broken, or network interference / attack / research.
