Exit guards?

Thinking about the "evil exit node" issue, I'm wondering: Do we need
exit guards?

Entry guards aren't magical. Without entry guards, you will eventually
hit a path with both the entry and exit node under control of the
attacker, and your anonymity is lost.

Same idea for exit guards. Not magical. But now you have a chance that
your information won't be lost to a bad node, while without them you
will eventually hit a bad exit node.
