So if I understand correctly, you would like some entity to keep
a directory of human memorizable names pointing to hidden service

The problem is this entity will be subject to pression from many
different actors. How should litigation over a unique name be handled?
What if some state decides this site should be censored? This is not a
very good place to be if you care about freedom of communication
(vs. only making money).
