flooding attacks to discover hidden services

Does the public nature of tor routers makes hidden services vulnerable to
discovery using flooding attacks?

Open an onion connection to the hidden service, asking for echos. Now flood each
router. If the "ping" is overly delayed, the router is on the hidden path.

Since the rendezvous node is known and the other nodes vary over time, this will
eventually reveal the entry node.
