thats especially important for bridges. even when the new bridgedb distributor is completed and makes it impossible to collect many bridges there is a much more brute way of finding bridges:
if bridges reveal their nature to any client without authentification they become an easy target for mass ip scanning. with enough bandwith the whole internet can be scanned within minutes.

Pluggable transports fix this issue, apart from the fact that an OR port exists (#7349).
