Feature: Allow Tor to use hosts like file (I2P addressbook like functionality) to translate sitenames into actual onion id
I just recently used I2P, and they have an addressbook feature which allows you to subscribe to several URL's (hidden or web), and these are basically services where people that want their sites to be found under a regular ID (sitename.i2p) post their site up (like to a search engine directory) and it gets included in the list (the list is like a hosts file list, only it's used internally in the program for DNS resolution). It basically translates "sitename.i2p" to the random hash asdfkj1234123adf.b32.i2p (I2P's version of random characters for going to hidden services) like a hosts file (but without using the actual system hosts file).
I was thinking, it would make Tor a lot more user friendly (and popular), for those sites that do want to be found, if we allowed this type of functionality. We would be able to use names such as "myforum.onion", and the like.
