    Curious why you are not just doing onion routing if you need anonymity or DHT
    if you don't.  In particular I would surmise that a protocol that floods the
    network will not scale.  Is there reason to assume an underlying structure in
    the network such that some nodes cannot reach each other directly, and if so,
    then why?  Have the requirements been documented?
