Actually, I suppose you can run the pattern across cells even with the
wide-block cipher, so it works on all circuit based schemes with
malleability, although the wide block cipher makes it easier.

In short, hidden services lack full bitwise unlinkability in any circuit
based anonymity tool like Tor.
