No one applied for .onion with ICANN this round. There are alternate
DNS roots out there, where anyone can register .onion. One test
to see what would happen is to setup your own .onion root. You can
then watch a tor client interact with the real tor hidden service,
http://idnxcnkne4qt76tg.onion/ or the domain you just setup as
http://idnxcnkne4qt76tg.onion/. Even add in www.idnxcnkne4qt76tg.onion
to catch browser redirects in your dns tld .onion root.
