Hm. That's not really true. An onion service should work regardless of
where it's hosted and that's the whole point (to provide
location-anonymity). If you had to use a different onion address based
on where it's hosted, then better stick to good ol' regular TCP/IP

"Latency problems, AS problems and circuit congestion" should not be
influenced too much by where the onion service is hosted. After all, you
have a 6 hop circuit to the onion service regardless of where it's
hosted, and that big circuit is probably the source of any issues.
