The Handbook says:

|WWW: so that automated tools will work correctly.

I have the impression that WWW should be used only
once (although you could interpret the sentence as
"at least once" as well), and is reserved for the
official homepage of the software that the port provides. 

My ports depend on Tor, but they don't provide it.

As far as I can see, doesn't have
any information regarding trans-proxy-tor
or dns-proxy-tor, therefore I don't see why
it should get the WWW tag.
