The private keys for the node are sensitive, and even the
.tor/state file for the guard nodes could be if the attacker
does not already have that info, same for any non default
node selection stuff in torrc. Tor presumably validates
the disk consensus files against its static keys on startup
so that's probably ok yet all easily under .tor anyway.

There was a thread on this some time ago you can find.
