It seems to me that TOR is a pretty vital application, even if it's not as popular as .local (which, let's be honest, is almost never seen, much less typed, by an end user).   I am deeply skeptical of the idea that the only relevant factor here is how widespread the squatting is on a particular top-level special-use domain.
