Can't speak for that particular initiative but the 'TrackMeNot' FF
browser plugin does something similar. http://cs.nyu.edu/trackmenot/

I doubt there is a panacea but this sort of thing probably makes
NSA/GCHQ type sponsored tracking and profiling that much more
problematic - Of course it is also a potential profiling input in itself
- maybe even an especially useful one, identifying you as someone
paranoid about privacy and thus moving you further up the POI scale
