v3 onions get rid of this enumeration attack entirely. They can be used
now with a recent Tor.

A wider point here is that "enumerate all .onions" *is* considered an
attack on the Tor network, so any "list of onion addresses" would have
to be strictly opt-in.

Anyone can therefore offer such a service (and people have over the
years done just that).
