Yes, I agree that onionbalance is an essential tool for onion service operators.

We have looked into how to make that possible for v3s but it doesn't
seem to be a trivial project: 

For what it's worth, we've been applying for onion-service related
funding as an organization so that we have more resources to support
third-party tools like onionbalance.

Other than that, we've been ultra busy bugfixing v3s and in general
supporting them, that does not allow us much time into improving
onionbalance given the current state of our resources.

Hope this was useful! :)
