To fix that need it would be nice to make a sort of "hosting provider"
(using existing tool for customer management, payments,
server/application deployment & maintenance) to host Tor Exit.

That way the "ownership", "liability", "costs", "abuse management" would
still be of the person running it's own server, but it would be highly
facilitated to be able to setup / sponsor Tor Exit somehow.

The "hosting provider" would choose the right balance between bandwidth
resources / ISPs locations / netblocks distribution.

The "hosting provider" would provide to it's own customer a ready made
ticketing-interface to handle abuse requests and management.

It would be a way to "industrialize" and facilitate the setup of "Tor
Exit ISPs".
