I've added these to the torspec repo as proposals 233 and 234
respectively.  They're still in "open" status, meaning that  more
comments and questions are welcome to figure out what the issues are
here, and what else we all need to figure out.

Some quick notes:

233: Implementing one-hop intro circuits for tor2web mode won't be
hard.  Implementing self-rendezvous will be harder, since it will
require a tor2web instance to start acting a little like a relay, when
right now it only acts like a client.

234: Is there a writeup anywhere of how you imagine this would be
used? I kind of wonder if there shouldn't be a generic mechanism for
sticking other contact/administrative stuff into a router descriptor,
maybe with an "X-" prefix.
