Would it make sense to gather also that kind of statistics if Tor is not
acting as a Relay but as a Client with Tor2web Mode enabled?

Because Tor2web gateways provide access from the Internet to a lot of
Tor Hidden Services, so that statistics maybe of interests too to be
gathered in the area of "Tor HS Statistics".

Currently "some stats" is gathered from Tor2web software at application
level, but not from the underlying Tor software:
