Not really, no one has claimed it's impossible to hide traffic.   What is true is that it's not feasible to do so at scale without it

cay photos somewhere, no matter how cute, I'm gonna consider that suspicious.  That's an absurd example (hopefully funny) but _any_ from 
one of my routers over time would be obvious, especially since to be effective this would have to go on much of the time and in many routers.  Hiding 
all that isn't feasible for a really technically astute company and they're not in that category yet (IMO).

It all depends on what you're trying to accomplish. Hijacking many cat photos to
send your cat photo... how deep is your DPI?

Remember also, the answer to the universe fits in 6 bits...
