Run by relay operators was the general idea, a bit more spine,
and more flexible setup. But certainly not restricted to that.

Some streams last more than a day, some apps are resumable,
but breaking the tuple and forcing a reneg or getexitbridges
more than once a day will seriously piss users off.
Millions of circuits worth of v6 a day also happen.
But yes you could get and SWIP a v6 /whatever worth
and throw them once a week or whatever your get and use
model for users rationally permits. Once a week is 52.
One per requestor, spread across all exits, probably possible.
v6 are unlimited but hosters probably still charge like gold for them.
Some operators should try it and see.
