Separate the various roles that directory authorities play, from a configuration POV

Description

It would be handy if the following roles were split up:

1) The list of IP:Orport:Identity to which every relay should upload every descriptor.
2) The list of IP:Orport:Identity from which caches should expect to find canonical consensuses and descriptors.
3) The list of IP:Orport:Identity from which non-caches should expect to bootstrap consensuses and descriptors. (See 'fallbackdir')
4) The list of keys that must sign a vote or a consensus.
5) The list of IP:Orport:Identity that authorities use when sending and receiving votes.

Splitting roles up in this way would better prepare us for an implementation of prop#257 down the road.

Deferring some andrea-assigned items from 0.2.9. Andrea, please move any of these back if you disagree; this is just a first approximation.
