Comment (by asn):

 We are consdering doing this but it's a lot of work. It's basically
 proposal 247 but it needs lots of work to make it work well if the whole
 network uses it.

 I can't think of a great fingerprinting danger if only a few people have
 node pinning enabled. The guard can figure this out, but if the attacker
 is your guard then you are fucked anyway. The pinned nodes can also figure
 it out, but I guess you are pinning them because you trust them. A local
 area adversary should not be able to distinguish something significant.
 Please correct me if I'm wrong
