Description

In #17674 and #8976, we block internal addresses when opening a connection.

In #18517, we chose 192.0.2.0/24 as a dummy address range for Tor Browser to use for pluggable transports to use when they don't have the actual remote address.

Let's add a comment near the IPv4 range in tor_addr_is_internal_ to never block those addresses (or, if we do, to change how Tor Browser and PTs work first).

We won't fix the issue this way, we're fixing the address check in #18517 instead.
