Tor isn't just designed to be resilient to attacks that are actually being employed. It is designed to be resistant to theoretical attacks too - as well it should be. Indeed: complaining that we're protecting against attacks, but nobody is using them is like saying `I bought this expensive umbrella, but then I didn't even get wet.':
