I don't quite see why the author insists that privacy and
accountability cannot be implemented within the same infrastructure

If you need accountability, you have to mutually authenticate all
involved parties; for this there are crypto protocols aplenty. If you
want to stay anonymous (and be then restricted to a subset of
capabilities you would have had, had you offered a proof of one of
your identities), no problem. Encrypted realtime traffic can be mixed
similiarly to anonymous remailers. In fact this should be default.
