I notice that the scheme also requires the directory servers to be the
folks that choose the random path that a message takes through the Tor
network. This seems like a poorly thought out choice to me. If a
directory turns out to be untrustworthy it could easily route a client
through a path that allows it to determine who the client is, what they
are sending, and to whom they are sending it.
This scheme in general gives a lot of power to the directory servers.
At least that is my reading of it. I'm definitely no expert in this
