this is one of many potential addressing and routing optimizations for
ad-hoc networks. for example, a dead-drop or multi-homed rendezvous
point may not care about disclosing coarse geo coords, but clients
sending to same may want much more stringent pseudonymous / anonymous

without context, this does seem counter intuitive for guerrilla comms.

(locality constrained broadcast horizons are useful as well; anonymous
wireless communication is indeed difficult; lots of problems and parts
to play with :)
