Re: [tor-talk] Let's make Onion Addresses Meaningful To Humans

Not correct; Namecoin supports mapping names to Tor hidden services, as well as I2P and Freenet sites. Obviously you need to use a Namecoin implementation that's a proxy instead of a DNS server, but that's not a big deal (nmcsocks already implements this).

What's wrong with a P2P name resolution? E.g. namecoin?
Everything. :-) Primarily the fact that namecoin provides
name->ipaddr mapping, and the whole point of *.onion is
that the service addressed ist *not* identified by an
IP address.
