No particular suggestions to offer on documentation, but 'hilarious' may
actually be 'good', since for situations like this where an HS doesn't need
to be open to the general public, it denies attackers the ability to cause
the HS to produce traffic on demand and thus probably makes it more resistant
to any HS exploits that may have been involved in recent events.
