Well, the subject line pretty much says it all: Lots of Tor relays send out

measure how fast the relay is sending out IP packets with high precision,
possibly making statistical attacks possible that could e.g. pinpoint the entry
guard a user or hidden service uses.
Why would this be? By design for some reason? Oversight? Misinterpretation of the data?
