0,5 can be a solution if anonymity is not a primary concern. The reason why 
it's hard to
find refs with 0,7 is to make it nearly impossible for somebody who wants to 
your identity to find yours, with 0,5 your node shouts your reference to the 
whole world
as soon as you start it... with no way to stop that.

You can also check out I2P, it is quite nicely worked, but has slightly more 
features than even 0,5 (such as it's easier to identify the person by analysing 
the timing
of the availability of the resource).

Anyhow, chose your options carefully.

Free your mind and seek the truth.
