Unfortunately, you're right.  It was my intention to include that in the 
chapter 2 rewrite I did in Rennes, but I see that it came out too 
informal.  I think we should open an issue, leading to a change in the 
specification that would make clear that nodes acting as the anonymous 
actor MUST NOT relay messages, but MAY generate responses or other 
dependent messages.  Otherwise, we are giving no rigorous sense in which 
the anonymous actor is the endpoint.
