I would have reservations about scalability and privacy.

The unique feature is the distributed nature of the directory, and once a connection is set up it's just all the usual
standard protocols for telecommunications.  Unfortunately, it's the directory service itself that would have problems
with scalability and privacy.    I would leave it to experts for more in-depth analysis of those issues though.

I like the idea of using free software for this and of casting off the yoke of centralized corporate control of the
aetherwaves though.
