Not as I understand it from reading the torrc manual page, although you
might be able to implement something like this through NAT rules on your

You can advertise multiple OR ports for incoming connections (I think)
but if you advertise too many your server descriptor will become too
large (it contains all your OR port addresses) and will not be accepted.
Every time your addresses change in server descriptors it resets a bunch
of timers, and the directory authorities see you as less "stable", so
it's best to not make regular changes there.
