Comment (by vynX):

 Consider that the reasoning not to deprecate Referer behavior only makes
 sense when interacting with legacy clearnet websites. Providers of onion
 services should learn not to rely on cross-domain referrer trickery. Every
 day some onion addresses are being leaked to my web servers just because
 they link me… that is a serious issue!
