Better description for when a consensus is "too early"

Nick Mathewson requested to merge nickm/torspec:spec_for_25756 into master

Since the authorities can produce a signed consensus as soon as ValidAfter minus DistSeconds, and since they serve a signed consensus as soon as it has enough signatures, it's possible that a client or relay that's starting late in the hour can get an "early" consensus. Back in tor#25756 (closed), we fixed this issue in Tor, but we didn't document the behavior in the spec.
