Tor doesn't have that and so far I have not heard of anyone being
interested in changing this. In fact, it would be such a drastic
intrusion into its current operation mode that it would risk affecting
the current way Tor operates. That is why it is good for everyone that
other platforms like GNUnet, Tribler and I2P experiment with this
challenge and Tor developers who think Tor has reached a sufficient
degree of maturity could come and help the other platforms. I can
imagine an integration happening at some point, since all of these
platforms need a relay router network to perform well.

Right, it's inept to think that the Tor network will ever scale to 1M nodes or more and to build something on top of it based on this assumption, the Tor network is not done for this.

But it's not inept to use the Tor protocol for a P2P network, assuming that you don't have to reuse the very same Tor network concepts, most of them do not apply as explained in [1]

And it's not inept to think that you can have all this inside your browser, it's already there and secured (Peersm project [2])

And no, you do not necessarily need a relay router (Peersm project again).
