You cannot take an address and make a new address that the same private key can use, correct? But this is just because of the hashing going on, if we used pure public/private key pairs that would actually be possible?
This is correct. If we used pure public keys, rather than hashes of public keys, then the sender could make new addresses for the receiver from normal keys.


Regarding identifying the sender generated keys. The sender could notify the receiver out of band, right?
Of course.
A business could use this model. However, if you end up notifying someone that you've sent him something you could loose the anonymity of the transaction if the side channel is monitored.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

Isn't it easier if the receiving party just generates a new keypair? or that's still not anonymous because they know someone sent coin there? How about using one of those coin mixing services?

That's the current model. If the new key is "published", say on a web site, it looses anonymity by becoming associated with the receiver.

The point here is that a transaction can be created between two keys, neither of which is associated with a person or business, if senders can generate keys for receivers, send coin, and never interact with the receiver in any other way.
