I use fitting in to mean maintaining a high level of anonymity in a crowd, rather than in the sense of assimilating into mainstream culture. By this usage, a Russian(without a burqa and no western culture) will fit anonymously into a typical crowd on Michigan Avenue. A person with a burqa, or even just an American Arab with a beard, while not unusual, will not be so anonymous. My real point was anonymity and I should have stressed that.

I took it that way and meant it that way.

Agreed. But is it really becoming commonplace?

Not in North America as far as I know. Let's not let it become commonplace.
