"Revocable Anonymity" is a farce and distraction; Skipjack Clipper
Clip[0] equivalent in every sense to the non-starter of "key escrow"

the United States National Security Agency as an encryption device,
with a built-in backdoor, intended to be adopted by telecommunications
companies for voice transmission."
