If a user wants to participate in my /48 and mir's /48,
one daemon, config file, etc could be easier. As might filter
rulesets matching on interface.

Assuming no other protection, and learning the onion via some method,
such as other public services or DHT snooping, port 8060 is but one TCP
connect away. A locally generated private /48 adds avg 2^47 guesses to that.

Both of above may be hypothetical but you never know what
users will come up with or like to do. Though multiple /48 is
much more work than just an option to set a single /48.

In that context, it's "not a broadcast network".

Arp for IP on ethernet is analogous simply syn check 8060
on tor+onioncat, both deal with the "up" and the address.
