We recently introduced the feature of "TRANSLATION MODE" to setup your 
own private Tor2web node, to expose with your own "private" Tor2web 
server only a single, specific onion host: 
https://github.com/globaleaks/Tor2web-3.0/wiki/Configuring-Tor2web#translation-mode

However that's to be used for specific context where one or more than 
one actors (public, receiver, whistleblower, admin) of GlobaLeaks (or 
other WB platform) need to access without strong- anonymity (The tor2web 
access policy can be configured in a granular way, depending on the uses 
https://github.com/globaleaks/GlobaLeaks/wiki/Advanced-configuration#tor2web-access-policy) 
.

However the use of Tor2web within a Whistleblowing platform must be used 
with extreme care, by understanding exactly how it change the threat 
model within the respect to the anonymity matrix
