Obviously, I need to read up on the spec before making comments.

That isn't my node we're talking about here.

But mine (5B1F0DAF378A1FAFCFD5FA9CDC66D1023DC0276E) lost guard status 
as well in december, and I have no idea as to why either - except
possibly because of running a non-recommended tor version (i.e. too
bleeding edge release branch state). That is fixed since two weeks or so,
and the addresses never changed.
