Right now, bootstrap events related to directory download progress are misleading, in that they can indicate that we've made progress that we have not actually made yet.

We report requesting_status when we've unblocked directory download progress by completing a directory circuit, not when we've actually transmitted the request to a directory server.

Similarly, we report requesting_descriptors when we've noticed that we need to do so, rather than when we've transmitted the request to a directory server.
