I can assure you that at least one institution I know of absolutely
does want e2e transparency. I've heard that others care about it
too, but we at least felt strongly enough to write up our own rfc
about security and its role in 'the network'.
I like what David was hinting at. Perhaps as users moved to PCs
to get the freedom and control of processing power, so to will they move
to get freedom of network transparency. Tunnelling tricks and
user (rogue?) proxies are current examples of that already happening
to get around centralized administrators' controls.
