bbPress stand-alone introduced anonymous posting in 1.0.3/1.1; it would be excellent to have this available at the launch of the plugin too.
Because topic replies are a custom post type, this involves giving anonymous users access to the wp_posts table, something that should not be taken lightly.
The existing comments API is a great place to start looking at how this is handled, as well as the existing code in bbPress trunk.
