No, I would not advise this, whatever Helder's arguments are, this can 
not work, even if you  get a lot of peers that expand the network you 
will still have the bottleneck of the Tor nodes, which are not numerous 
enough, managed by a centralized system as you mention, not compatible 
at all with a real P2P system.

What can work is a separate P2P network (maybe) based on the same 
concepts (maybe --> again, I would not take the model of hidden services)

For Helder & team, did you really test up to now what it takes to 
establish (good) circuits in the Tor network and do you have an idea of 
the "real-time" average number of nodes that are behaving correctly? And 
performances, lifetime of the circuits?
