Agreed. I'll add my voice to those voting in favour of the default
policy for a relay being non-exit. As Tom said, those competent enough
to run tor in a VPS can be trusted to be competent enough to edit torrc
to allow exit (and apply an appropriate policy). A naive, or new, tor
user should not be bitten by a default exit. As I believe Gordon M said
earlier, that is a serious "WTF?"
