Thanks for introducing this interesting idea of reconfigurating the Huffman tree by exploiting the freedom on the choice of the actual Huffman tree shape (as contrary to a canonical Huffman tree). I would like to pose the following two questions:

Why is skipping a small constant number of bits after outputting a DC sufficient for protecting encryption?

Can your approach be extended to other statistical compression schemes using binary tree representations like Huffman trees for the codewords? I have the following paper in mind:
