Go play packet filter rate limits, works fine.

They already send all kind of traffic to each other today.
Go plug in your 100Mbps NIC, go buy 10Mbps from
your ISP, then go send 10Mbps worth of whatever you
want between whoever you want. Works fine.

That's further approachable with some network fill design
than it is with tor or anything else today that do nothing.
Possibly even a 10x odds reduction or more.

Define 'bursty'. Anything three packets or more might be considered
as such. An email message is a lot of TCP packets, go plot their
traffic curve.

Go play with packet filter rate limits, introduce and give a wheat
flow priority over a pipe that is already maxed out with a chaff flow,
watch the flows trade off.
