    11Another reason which I just thought about: The argument in the Tor Browser design documentation assumes that the user in question leaves everything in the Tor Browser by default. But there's no guarantee for that, and in real life many users make themselves more fingerprintable (e.g. by changing the browser's size, ...etc). In such a case, blocking some trackers may turn out to be beneficial, if only to prevent some trackers from easily fingerprinting some users.
