[tor-relays] Opt-In Trial: Fallback Directory Mirrors

I'm not on the list and wish to opt-in (for future releases I suppose).

My relay, 00C4B4731658D3B4987132A3F77100CFCB190D97 , does not fit the
criteria because it's an exit node, but my exit node does not experience
high load, and averages out at about ~60% capacity by bandwidth and <50%
by processing, so I'm interested in contributing as much as I can.
