And 5 "do not send anything outside", no? Usually you can restrict with 
your ISP box but can you trust it?

What happens if you connect directly your PC to the Cloak with a cable?

Maybe the concept of several wifis is good but I don't see it very 
usable, not sure what would be the security requirements for this but 
assuming that I am trusting my local network why not a simple web 
interface where you can configure the same for any device connected to 
the box:

- do not allow anything outside
- allow all traffic outside Tor
- force everything through Tor (warning: close your bittorrent clients)
option: the Cloak could detect the bittorrent traffic
- force eveything through Tor except torrents
- force ssl through Tor, non ssl outside

I have not dug into the details exactly but I _know_ it "phones home" regularly and it is definitely a use case where the Tor browser bundle would be impossible.  Problem is that one is unattended so if I were to do a captive portal kind of page and that would require a positive acceptance, the Cloak would be useless for this scenario.
