 This was a deliberate design decision back when we added bandwidth files
 to CollecTor. Bandwidth scanners and the files they generate are not tied
 to directory authorities except that ''usually'' one bandwidth file is
 being used by one directory authority. But it could be that a bandwidth
 file is never being used, or used by more than one directory authority.
 The only way to be certain about a bandwidth file being used by a
 directory authority is to look at a vote find the bandwidth file reference
 in there.

 I'll leave this open as an enhancement and in needs_information for our
 next team meeting to decide whether we want to question this design
