BK-style power spectra of v04.00-06 CMB-S4 sims (CDT Report config)

Due a screw-up models 01/03/06 in the below are broken - the noise de-bias is incorrect.

This posting is the same as Justin's 20170623_bkfinal_02.00 but updates to the CDT report final noise levels and move of 20GHz channel to large aperture telescope.

Note: The contours mark the simulated bandpower in each bin closest to the respective percentile.

Note: Remember that bandpower is a variance. Hence bandpower error bar is the std of a variance. This means noise and sample fluctuation components straight add, no quadrature — i.e. the difference between blue and red is the signal fluctatution component.
