Isn't the permanent-key field, described in that same section, the
long term public key of the hidden service? I believe it is (unless
stealth auth is used), and if it is, it's trivial to learn the .onion
address given a hidden service descriptor.

(It can apparently be different when the "Stealth auth" feature from
section 2.2 is in place, but I don't believe that's widely used, and
it isn't an answer to the enumeration issue.)
