I have to admit I was unaware of 'getinfo address'. For sure, the warning
needs an update as soon as GitHub tells me WTF is going on with my account.

These days, my thinking is that the purpose of corridor is not security but:

safety against accidental misconfiguration (especially for developers);

outsourcing :) the potential troubles of open WiFi to exit node ops, who are
are way better equipped to deal with them;

increasing Tor adoption in your neighborhood.
