Title: Remove "Named" and "Unnamed" handling from consensus voting
Author: Nick Mathewson
Authorities no longer vote for the "Named" and "Unnamed" flags, and we
have begun to remove the client code that supports them. (See proposal
235). The next logical step is to remove the special handling from these
flags from the consensus voting algorithm. We specify this here.
We add a new consensus method, here represented as M, to be allocated
when this proposal's implementation is merged.
We specify that the Named and Unnamed flags are only handled
specially when the negotiated consensus method is earlier than M. If
the negotiated method is M or later, then the Named and Unnamed
flags are handled as if any they were any other consensus flags.
