After #3723 is completed, authorities will list the bandwidth file headers in their votes.
After #21377 is completed, they will make bandwidth files available at a standard URL.

But if we want to cryptographically verify the exact bandwidth file that was used in a vote, we need to put a hash of the file in the vote. Let's do it in an extensible way:

bandwidth-file hash-algo base64(hash(bandwidth-file-content))
