will WTF-PAD impair bandwidth scanning?
Is it possible that excess padding data from the WTF-PAD enhancement will impair quality of bandwidth scanner results?
If the answer is yes, should a control channel feature be created to allow disabling WTF-PAD for controller-managed circuits?
Note in anticipation of a debatable concern: Great quantities of thought have been expended and verbiage has been generated regarding fingerprinting of scanner traffic that can lead to attacks on the network, but my view is this is not as important as producing good network balance. Attracting excess traffic to relays is seemingly of no benefit to the sophisticated adversary and brick-throwing troublemakers can be identified and mitigated. Years of experience with Torflow have not resulted in major incident (AFIK).
