I'm not sure I would call that use case more private. An observer
could 
categorize your traffic incoming from an intermediary relay and time
that 
traffic with outgoing traffic. The same observer could perform a
congestion 
attack on your exit and use that result to make differentiation more
accurate.

Such as? The only two I can see are that you would know, assuming
opsec,
that you can trust the zeroth, and first-hop. That and if you support
PT on the
bridge you might consider that to be more resistant to analysis.
