Comment(by bastik):

 I asked DDG [1] if it would be welcomed to make use of DDG for the TBB.

 There's no official answer, yet. I consider the reply of 'bizarre' as
 opinion hold by a moderator. He points out that the hidden-service could
 be used as well. I don't know how error-prone hidden-services are.
 Ultimately I assume that the "normal" website will work at any time,
 unless there's a big problem.
