And networks would be harder to debug, unless you happened to work for the 
comsec utility or the NSA and already had all the decryption keys.

Let me suggestion using IPv7 where encryption is also optional, but at least
happens to use the same ecdsa keys you use for your money to encrypt packets
if you so desire.
