I'm starting with a theorem and arguing informally from there. And yes, I know it's informal. I'm starting with the math and then arguing as an engineer -- it doesn't make sense do go the way you're suggesting when there are other paths that are known to be worth doing. Oh, and we know that the NSA is doing. I don't see that it is nonsense to argue that if I were an evil genius, I'd go here for these reasons and then note that that is actually the direction that we know the NSA is going.
