Make the bridge authority reject private PT addresses when DirAllowPrivateAddresses is 0

When DirAllowPrivateAddresses is 0, the bridge authority should reject extra info descriptors with private addresses in their PT lines.

We should add some text asking operators to upgrade, and deploy this change after #31009 is backported,

Gaba, this ticket should go in the PT sponsor with #31009.

Another option here is to leave the bridge authority alone, and teach bridgedb that if there's an internal address in the extrainfo descriptor, it should swap it out in favor of the public address in the descriptor.

Then once the #31009 fix is sufficiently deployed, it shouldn't matter anymore.

(That way we could make use of the current obfs4 bridges even if they haven't upgraded yet.)
