Clients could get away with only knowing the key fingerprints for relays in their paths, except for their Guards, which are the only relays they connect to directly. (This might mean a protocol redesign, because I think we send IP and port as well as fingerprint at the moment.)

There are probably other fields we could drop in the common case, if we really needed to.

But do we really need to?
