v3 onion services just seem like a way worse deal to the average user and 
the unknowledgeable admin. Mainly because the addresses are way too long. I 
can remember a couple of v2 addresses, but not a single v3 address. So that's 
just bad advertising from the start.

Before at least Facebook, DuckDuckGo, The New York Times, the Debian Project 
and even the Tor Project themselves (!) have rolled out their v3 onion 
services, one shouldn't even think about deprecating HSv2. It's going to be 
around for many years to come, taking for them just as long to vanish as an 
SSL version, I think, unfortunately.
