The policy around Validator slashing

Description

Strategic Category: Growth & Reduce Risk: 8, 8

Background:
The RChain software is new and under active development. In the event a software bug in the RChain software causes a validator to be slashed, it's reasonable that some recompense be available to the validator.

Proposed Process:
The Validator submits logs to a bug report including evidence of the slash, core issue.  Validator has to also provide evidence that they are running CoOp node software.  If upon investigation, the outcome is that the issue is a software defect, the slashed amounts are refunded to the validator.

Slashed bond is routed to a CoOperative address, and an out of protocol process for vetting the slash for bugs is in place.
