I think that should be possible reading
I don't think there is anything that stops us from taking the generated
onion private key, splitting it up as specified, and assigning a
mnemonic to it. You could imagine a third-party tool that just reads the
privkey file and outputs the mnemonic, or reads the mnemonic and
generates a privkey file.
Not sure if this belongs to the upstream Tor code, but I guess it if it
gains enough popularity something can be arranged ;)
