Comment (by twim):

 I think that because of #20082 and that startuptime should be revealed by
 default (that's what users expect), it's reasonable to introduce
 `ObfuscateOnionServiceStartupTime` instead that defaults to `0`. Thus it
 would not conflict with Single Onions and SOS operators can obfuscate
 startup time also (maybe pointless).
 If implemented, it should be built on top of #20082 (without lower bound
 for initial delay) just with `crypto_rand_int(2*rendpostperiod)` delay
 instead of immediate first upload.
