Comment(by arma):

 I totally expect some weird behavior as parts of the network upgrade here.

 A) As relays upgrade, they will prevent people from doing long-path
 attacks through them. Good.

 B) As relays upgrade, old clients will concentrate their circuits on the
 ones that haven't upgraded. Bad.

 At some point we may find ourselves wanting to cut relays out of the
 network that don't enforce the relay_early semantics. I don't think we're
 anywhere close to there yet.
