But ultimately the information must be transferred in some way. While the example you give below - splitting the message over two or more carriers - is partially effective given a single point of weakness, it does not lead to a secure P2P solution any more than me sending someone an email, a text message and P2P message to get the message across. If you have multiple points at which the information could be picked up - someone has bugged the room you had coffee in, your phone is tapped and the P2P protocol has been cracked - then you may as well have sent the whole thing in the open anyway.
