Exactly. And it would be a big mistake to attempt to merge obfuscation
support into WireGuard itself. Tor's approach of pluggable transports
is probably the right one.

"WireGuard does not focus on obfuscation. Obfuscation, rather, should
happen at a layer above WireGuard, with WireGuard focused on providing
solid crypto with a simple implementation. It is quite possible to
plug in various forms of obfuscation, however."

Here are my arguments:
