I think OCAL should do its own research into the legal viability of
this.  While I can see cases in which anonymity is needed, such as
where the artwork is a form of political protest and the submitter is
located within the geographical confines of a repressive regime, the
"almost went to law school" side of me says that we do a huge
disservice to the end user by not doing more than storing an IP
address to identify the submitter of an artwork.
