What is the difference - regarding trustworthiness - between
nodes on the path between endpoints of user communication,
and the endpoints of a cadet path? "Only" the number of nodes
being involved is getting higher, and therefore the number of nodes
"knowing" about the path. The chance of having an adversary
node being part of the path rises, but the knowledge which node is
the actual receiver of the cadet message is harder to get for an
adversary node in the path. I think the answer to the question
if this is making the meta protection better is: it depends. :-)

Maybe someone knowing cadet better than us can enlighten us. ;-)
