This has been proposed before. I believe there is a VPN-based network on such 
principles (always jump a nation boundary on each hop). I would point out 
that the set of such antipathic relationships is quite small. On Freenet, it 
wouldn't help much IMHO (on opennet i.e. Strangers, it is possible to attack 
the network without compromising nodes) and would have a considerable 
performance cost. There was a design decision taken that if you have security 
level NORMAL and therefore use opennet you want adequate (if not stellar) 
performance; high security and opennet do not go together on Freenet's 
architecture, so options that cost a lot of performance are disabled by 
default on NORMAL; HIGH turns off opennet. However if somebody sends a patch 
and some mechanism to update the IP mappings, we would consider having it as 
an option.
