Can you describe it more with some use scenairo? I don't completely understand what are you requesting. Anonymous users can post comments when DISCUSSION_APPEND permission is granted to 'anonymous'.

I want a user who has ALREADY LOGGED IN to be able to comment on a post AS anonymous just so as to conceal his identity. BUT, I don't want a user to be able to comment without logging in. So, granting DISCUSSION_APPEND permission 'anonymous' won't serve my purpose.

Scenario:
When I visit the trac site and I don't login and I am browsing the discussion forum. In this case I should NOT be able to post any comments.

On the other hand, now, I have logged in as lets say "abcdef". And now I want to post a comment. BUT, I don't want other users to know that the comment has been posted by "abcdef".

Me too, just its not a great fit with the rest of Trac core and common functionality.

Usually it works, that if you want privacy, you shouldn't post within an authenticated session. You can still choose a few different degrees of privacy while in an anonymous session by providing a name or email address while posting.

So I would refrain from adding a different concept, at least it wouldn't be enabled by default. If enabled, it could be a check-box to not record an authenticated user's session ID for comments on a per-request base.

IMHO the aforementioned reason justifies at least to lower ticket ranking for development.
