I am thinking that a lot of things will need to be addressed if Tor
clients are to be used at large enclaves. (I assume you mean something
like client-at-the-enclave-firewall rather than
client-at-the-workstation. The latter will still probably require
many things before it can be effected but I imagine client-side rate
limits would be a nonissue or a minor issue vs. for other users.)
