"Measurements Results" describes how the bandwidths are created by some
generators. But a generator that believes self-reported results doesn't measure,
it just aggregates. (As does a peerflow-style generator.)

"Document" is vague. Let's describe what the document is: a list.

Let's use:
Tor Bandwidth List Format

What is the document?
A Tor Bandwidth List

How do I parse it?
Using the Tor Bandwidth List Format

Are there any similar formats?
The Tor Directory List Format
