It wouldn't. Traffic correlation doesn't care of the traffic content 
itself. It doesn't break the traffic anonymity, it just correlates your 
traffic with the traffic on the site you're visiting, regardless of nodes 
or encryption layers in between. I guess that there are methods to 
calculate a probability based on correlating individual packets. Later it 
could be used in court, like "we're 99,99999% certain it was him".
