how would you like to tweak it? 
I tried to keep it as simple as possible for relay operators
to keep adoption trivial.

The ContactInfo spec is used currently by 100 relays (>12% exit probability).
The amount of relays using it increased from 44 to 100 after version 1
of the spec got released on 2020-07-21. The well-known URI will
be part of version 2.
