You're assuming that tracking can be improved much.

If you want to communicate anonymously, you must leave the
open Internet, and use an anonymizing layer like Tor. E.g.
cjdns (which happens to run on top of IPv6) is not an anonymizing
layer. I2P is distinctly too weak, and Tor is at times to weak.

We need a provably secure anonymous communication platfor for
high-latency connections (low-latency connections appear to
be intrinsically hard to anonymize).
