There is that, but they can also in theory replace all of your peers,
and thus know what keys you are downloading/uploading.

Yes -- you actually (hopefully) know and trust each of your peers,
unlike opennet strangers. I believe that is the only significant
difference. (To infiltrate a/the darknet, physical surveillance /
kidnapping / bribing / torture is necessary.)
