If my understanding is correct, the answer is No. No we cannot prevent
longterm intersection attacks by using decoy traffic in the
katzenpost/loopix system because users will go offline and come back
online later which changes the anonymity set size and thus leaks
information to a global network observer.

I suspect that there are mixnet use cases which are not vulnerable or
less vulnerable to this... such that user or application behavior does not
form a "session" where users send multiple messages over long periods which
can be linked by a passive observer.
