- - What you describe as obfuscated URLs sounds a lot like precursor
designs of hidden services. For example, encoding a path into the
locator works only as long all nodes in that path are functional. Hidden
services (and other designs) have directory services to overcome that
problem. Why make a step backwards?
- - Tor is made for interactive communication, not for exchanging single
files. Even if you don't intend to exchange bulk files, others will do
so. Unfortunately, the Tor network does not have the necessary capacity.
