But as you mentioned there might be fingerprinting techniques (e.g. user-agent individualism, cookies) or other leakages (e.g. announcing source addresses in SMTP and HTTP ...

Preface: I consider this question to be a false dichotomy and an inversion of the burden of proof. One of the core tenets of building secure systems is that you minimise the attack surface, and resist additional components and features wherever possible to keep in line with this. As such, if one cannot identify a strong reason to include a component in the ...
