Ahh, you're correct, I forgot that HIddenServicePort did port mappings automatically. I'm not sure the first line would have any security consequences, as is the origin point, and would allow traffic originating from the machine to exit via the same machine, which would only happen with very strange configurations (i.e. all of the single-hop options set to true), if at all. But I do see that it is useless at best.
