exactly. and i support your view of the chiness position. now i know the
chiness are twice as smart as we give them credit for. so i would say
they would put some added catch 22 into the works that would favour them.
and possibly use a terrorist angle - which is all the fashion rage this
year i hear.

be surprised if that protocol ends up as kiddie porn heaven. in fact
any group who does not want to be traced can use ipv8 to communicate
