Description

When we have ed keys in the consensus, we won't need this flag any more.
And so we won't need to write any code to actually use it in relays or clients.

Atlas currently has code to display this flag when it's present, which should be cleaned up once the flag is removed.

Closing #23170 since the HS reachability issue has been "solved" by bumping the HSDir store parameter so I'm unparenting this and sending it to the Unspecified world.

Do we still intend to one day have ed keys in the consensus? If not, then maybe this should be wontfix too?

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

We intend one day to have _only_ ed keys in the consensus, but that's a long way off, and we can revisit it when we do that design.
