From looking at the Tor implementation (in a black box way, didn't look at the source code) these seem to be big endian byte order. We should have a note in cert-spec for implementors so they don't have to guess.

We have a similar note in tor-spec.txt, which we could copy across.
(I'm not sure if cert-spec.txt was ever part of tor-spec.txt.)

It's fine to copy the notice, or to add it by reference.
