Lack of user understanding re referer header

From SM:

Section 3.5 discusses about lack of user understanding. Current browsers do not display or else distill information presented in the user interface. For example, the final target URI is displayed instead of the intermediate URI (e.g. Google search). Removing the HTTP Referer does not bring much in terms of privacy when the user has a browser toolbar add-on that will disclose information about the sites being accessed.
