Description

Since we stopped voting on nicknames, they've become even less reliable as a way to identify a relay.

MapAddress (and similar man page entries) should be updated to recommend the use of fingerprints, not nicknames.

Branch doc18312 in my repo. Trivial. I didn't find other instances in the manpage where we recommend nicknames over fingerprints; please let me know if there are more.

Since it only touches the docs, and since it's only two lines, I re-reviewed myself and merged it to 0.2.8.
