Description

Over in #14937 the Tor Browser folks are trying to do a 'getinfo ns/id/...' on a bridge, and of course it's not working because there *are* no networkstatus stanzas for bridges. But our control-spec just says words like "OR" and "server" so I can't blame them for not intuiting that some ORs have ns entries and some don't.

I also bet the same thing would happen in "getinfo md/id/..." -- we just say "the latest microdescriptor for a given OR." when describing what this feature does.

I'm cc'ing Atagar here too since I bet stem could find this ticket interesting too.

Unless I'm missing something this doesn't seem like a very interesting spec addition. Bridges are unpublished relays. I wouldn't even think to expect these methods to work.

If you'd care to add a sentence clarifying that in the spec then that's certainly fine. Just not something I'd consider necessary.

I'll take a patch for this if somebody writes one.

Finally admitting that 0.3.??? was a euphemism for Tor: unspecified all along.

Remove an old triaging keyword.
