I understand but don't really agree with your point. Mainly because I
can't think of a single positive thing that can happen because of this
public list.

FWIW, none of the above will actually help against a non-experienced
user that uses tor2web to connect to an onion by mistake. Even with HS
authorization or HTTP auth, the onion will forever be imprinted on
that public list.
