for the use-case that TinCan is intended for, it would be prudent to consider mac sniffing a threat. if a state-level adversary can collect your mac addr, they could track you in a way similar to what grocery stores do already, noting your presence or absence at subsequent events, or even spot you somewhere else.

we know that police already set up wifi sniffers at protests, and there's no reason to expect that practice to decrease, so you should probably have TinCan spoof a random mac addr on boot if not every time a new master is chosen.
