No, you got me wrong there. I am not speaking about a single entity
running this experiment, but independent entities like for the (large)
Tor network.

I know I can set up custom Tor networks, but it's not really something
that is well explained. I envision it in a way where I can chose what
network I want to become part of - eg. by downloading all/its config
files from some place (client/middle/exit selectable) - and it sets up
the rest.

Also, but this is a whole different disussion and I'll ask it on the Tor
dev meeting - the reason for me to post this is because I tend to forget
things quickly - is: Sorry, I am lazy, there is probably a paper on
this, but why doesn't Tor (aim to) allow both high and low latency traffic?
