I don’t think that’s the case: when an HTTP proxy is in use, clients
make a CONNECT or GET HTTP request to the proxy, which resolves the host
name on their behalf.  That’s why you can pass
‘--substitute-urls=http://bp7o7ckwlewr4slm.onion’ and it Just Works.

So I think you message could make a great section in the cookbook.  :-)
