Does Tor currently use DNSSEC when looking up nodes? This would  
eliminate need for a special directory of nodes and keys as DNSSEC is  
a PKI structure. We could also do something like pool.ntp.org does to  
get random nodes. A lookup for pool.tor.eff.org would return the DNS  
data of a random node, simplifying node lookup and reduce memory  
requirements for clients.
