[tor-relays] Bandwidth limits for Fallback Directory Mirror

due to the new DigitalOcean billing terms for bandwidth (see this other
thread [1]), I have limited my relay bandwidth to be sure I will stay
withing the limits:
RelayBandwidthRate 360 KB  # Throttle traffic to 100KB/s (800Kbps)
RelayBandwidthBurst 720 KB # But allow bursts up to 200KB/s (1600Kbps)

This is the relay:

The relay is also a Fallback Directory Mirror. I plan on keeping the
relay running, but I was wondering if the new limits disqualify it or if
they are a problem to let it be a fallback directory mirror.

Thanks for you help.

p.s.: I've also asked to DO if they could revert my last charges for the
bandwidth, since they were quite steep and, frankly, unexpected. Let's
see what they say...
