If we do have multiple types of SingleOnionMode we should specify this
type as a value to NonAnonymousOnionServiceMode option (or so). Why not?

Sorry for my bias towards NonAnonymousOnions but SingleOnion really
confuses me.

That's why I propose to use "NonAnonymousOnionServiceMode 1" instead of
just "NonAnonymousMode 1".

Gosh, it would be really inconvenient and nontransparent. And error-prone.
