Comment (by teor):

 Replying to [comment:2 mcs]:
 > teor, do you know what tor's current behavior is? Will tor complain if a
 regular node is used in a Bridge line or is there no real distinction?

 No, there is no real distinction. As far as the bridge client is
 concerned, relays and bridges are equivalent.

 In fact, our IPv6 relay wiki page recommends using relays as bridges to
 test them. (It's easier than configuring EntryNodes.)
