	It's not clear what you mean, but if you think people could generally send dummy traffic to eacht other at the max rate advertised by their ISP-mosad-nsa-gchq local mafia, you're obviously wrong. 

	Anyway, it's not a big problem. Since you can't just foward traffic from the  overlay to the arpanet web cesspool and expect anonimity, my implicit point was that such limitation needs to be taken into account. Services that don't require high speed/high volume traffic, like, say, mail, may be fine. 'Bursty' traffic won't work. One shouldn't build services for selling drugs or killing politicians using the centralized web client/server model.
