One thing to keep in mind, when considering using such dead-drop facilities, is that the technique was originally developed for use by spies.  Anyone using such dead-drops may find themselves under arrest, on suspicion of being spies and/or terrorists.  While you may well be able to persuade the authorities that you aren't a spy or terrorist, the arrest will likely remain on your record.

This was discussed in the German Mailinglist

with no ultimate conclusion, so feel free to ignore this information. ;-)

IMHO your proposal focuses too much on "electronic" deaddrops. Why not
see USD-Sticks as one of many possibilities and subtag them
accordingly (medium=pen_drive / paper / etc.)?
