If I understand those diagrams correctly then it appears that adding one more hop (going from three to four) would make this attack infeasible. It shouldn't be too hard to update the client for four hops. Either that or introduce random latencies which would degrade the service immensely.

Random latency along with chopping each packet and re-packing would go a long way, but I agree that an already slow system would creep and crawl.
