Just to clarify here, I never said MESH would give you anonymity.
I only said it should give you better NAT traversal and better
authenticity and confidentiality than TLS/HTTPS (largely because you
avoid the CA mess).  Good anonymity will require more than MESH, and for
Guix I am not sure that having anonymity is necessary (it might of
course be fine to have that as an option in the future).
