Whether it's public/fast/direct or hidden, they are both Must-Tor
services. You can't get away from that basic requirement.

Tor Services, being either Fast/Direct/Public or Hidden/Onion, could be
the generic term for either. It would get away from any possibility of
what OS is - Onion Service vs. Operating System. MustTor could be a term
to reflect a requirement to access the Service, but if that's the case
you can drop "Must" as that would be a known given, Tor *must* be used.
But having MustTor/Mustor as the [open] service name would only provide
unreasonable ambiguity to the hidden onion services.

Just to throw a wrench into the mix...

- (OS) Obfuscated Service to replace Hidden (Onion) Service
- (DS) Direct Service to represent the new type of Onion Service
- (TS) Any [Must-]Tor Service

Those... seem to me to be clear and to the point...
