I think this strays a bit far afield from tor-dev, but..
If an academic group was interested in basically redesigning the web to
be more sane, then Servo might be a good place to start.
There are a whole bunch of things one could do, like forcing much more
to be catchable by using content based addressing, restrict cross
site/origin communication to be with single use blind signed tokens
better PKI, etc. All the stuff that TBB cannot do because it'd break
to many sites.
In short, one could attempt to build a better freenet using grants for
"security" work. And the long game would be to guilt the browser
makers and web standards people into tightening things up.
