I'd ACK using the DHT, but the use of HTTP means that it (often) won't
work if the peer is behind NAT.  If you instead use GNUnet MESH to
establish a TCP-like connection to the file transfer, you might be
less efficient than a direct TCP/HTTP connection, but you should get
through NAT _and_ be less observable _and_ have "good" encryption
(not just TLS).

My 2 cents
