As the cryptographic design changes for next generation onion services
are now being rolled out, that
in-my-opinion-never-actually-well-grounded concern will go away. I
cover at a high level, a design for onion altnames in "The Once and
Future Onion" [1] that I think is consistent with the current CA/B
Forum issues about onion addresses. It doesn't cover all desired
cases, so I hope you are successful. But I think it covers a lot of
the ground.
