This would be better solved in Onionoo, this way it only needs to be fixed once and new tools would already be doing the right thing.

No, I'm sorry, this is tool-specific.

For example, metrics bot might want to hide the exit flag on bridges to avoid confusing casual viewers.
But relay search might not, because it's important we know when bridges have an exit policy (because it's weird).
And a detailed analysis tool might want to show all the flags, because it wants the actual bridge networkstatus contents.

So I think this decision really does belong with each tool.
If you agree, please fix the tickets.

I think I agree with teor here. It might depend on the tool which flags are relevant and which are not. I'd rather not want us to mess with them in Onionoo and include whatever we find in the bridge network status. Re-assigning to Relay Search.
