That risks surely exists, but given that top-10 internet destinations
are handled by few large corporations, it would be relatively easier to
advocate them to have their legal department to always consider the Tor
Exonerator when answering their LEA inquiry.

If Tor Project and EFF engage to have Google's Legal department handling
LEA inquiry to always check if that IP address has been Tor or not and
return that information, the deal is done.

Obviously it's much easier to do that with the top-10 internet company
than with everyone of the internet.

Assuming that the top-10 internet company are also the top-10
destination traffic, then, WIN! :-)
