Doesn't "make random people into public (middle-only) relays" have the
(well maybe not "problem", but "issue"?) that when GFW blocks them, they
(the random people who bought an Excito/etc.) won't be able to connect
to anything in .cn any more?  Although I don't _often_ connect to .cn
domains, it seems unfortunate to effectively auto-ban these people from
Chinese websites.
