good to know  that you think it is useful. :)

I didn't toot it so far.

First I wanted to gather some feedback, especially about the following 
section, where I've added a recommendation what to use instead
of incompatible header encryption:

| Transport information in a decentral network - just like the writing on the
| outside of a postal mail envelope - cannot be protected in principle.
| When reflecting on this, chose  a subject that is plausible in context,
| but without sensitive contents, to best veil potential unwanted observers. 
| (Your thinking is right: The more sensitive this is, the more you have
| to build up a plausible context for your unavoidable traces first.)

(Also I've just improved the phrasing and spelling.)

Best Regards,
