Add option to only accept tracker peers

Description

Would it be possible to add a setting in Transmission which makes it only accept peers that the tracker supply you with?
I noticed that the tracker didn't record my uploaded data correctly, and found out that the reason was that I had been uploading to peers outside the tracker, but PEX was disabled. As I see it, the reason for this was other peers supplying my IP to peers outside the tracker and Transmission accepting these without checking with the tracker.

There already exists the option to disable peer exchange. Trackers record your stats on announce and quit - it has nothing to do with the peers you connect to.

I've disabled peer exchange, but still users not belonging to the tracker connect to me and can download. I believe this has to do with other users using peer exchange and sends my IP to users outside the tracker. The tracker records my announces, but doesn't accept them because I upload to peers outside the tracker.

Nothing we can do about what peers connect to you - it makes no sense to reject peers if they're trying to connect. What do you mean the tracker doesn't accept your announces because you upload to peers outside the tracker? That makes no sense. Perhaps consult the tracker and see what they have to say.
