I see the paper progressing in CVS (which may be not in accordance with
the distribution terms mentioned on the conference page, BTW).  I'd like
to mention a few words about my opinion in the bittorrent/wikipedia
discussion (but hopefully not restart it! :).  So, there may be a few
technical measures to invent to thwart abusers, but limiting privacy to
those "worthy" for it is always a political problem, comparable to
censorship, and makes the sleeping privacy activist in me unhappy (cue
Rev. Martin Niemoller here).

It's interesting to think if humanity will ever be so advanced as to not
needing privacy enhancement techniques to grant privacy for anyone, or
if we will always need some of us depending on Tor-like networks to
hinder the less-noble...
