Description

Some exit operators[0] report their exits have light loads.

Perhaps we should disable, or reduce the severity of (50%?) the exit consensus weight reduction, particularly during the opt-in period.

Implementing #17905 would obsolete this ticket.

I think we'll disable this, and ask operators of under-utilised exits with a DirPort to also opt-in as fallbacks.

See my branch bug17888 on https://github.com/teor2345/tor.git for a one-line change to the fallback directories script that weights exits and other fallback directories the same.
