How secure is it, really?

Well, this gives you confidentiality (at least in theory) and integrity (with the same caveat). As far as availability goes, how hard would it be to implement a DoS attack against this kind of traffic? Would such an effort affect everyone with a torrent client or would it be possible to target an arbitrary client?
