Any such measures must be duly justified and must be proportionate and limited to what is necessary in a democratic society."

HearHear. Save that democracy requires anon.

I had the privilege once of speaking with various policy makers on this
issue at the head of a very large national company. At the end, they felt
that Anon Services were neither good nor bad... eg: acceptable under
the workplace personal endeavour policy. However ultimately a soft ban
came down because they really didn't want to deal with the inbound LE
requests and temporary loss of hardware.
