Description

I doubt clients do this: they only download the consensus, not votes:

A client should believe that a router supports a given feature if that
   feature is supported by the router or protocol versions in more than half
   of the live networkstatuses' "v" entries for that router.

Fixed in 0951a931f66b53.

The entire section was obsolete, and only made sense under the v2 networkstatus protocol.
