Can't find the article now, but I once read it is more difficult for
China to add IP-based blocks than keyword/url ones. It takes them
longer to add IP blocks as opposed to new keywords. Couple this with
the fact that there is probably a lot of churn a lot of the Tor nodes
towards the middle-bottom, and a way to get this directory information
across might be enough for a while...
