Comment (by karsten):

 I just commented on #24436 that we might not have to block on CollecTor
 providing fallback directory information.

 Two more ideas I had when reading this ticket today:
  - We should also add a new `"fallback_directory`" (or similarly named)
 field in details documents, rather than just the entry in
  - Rather than extending the `"flag"` parameter, which would require a
 major protocol update, we could as well introduce a new
 `"additional_flag"` parameter that searches just additional flags. Users
 would then have to know whether a flag is one set by the directory
 authorities or by Onionoo, but that's not necessarily a bad requirement.
 And we wouldn't need a major protocol update.
