I'd say if you want to run an exit node you shouldn't try to hide. You
should own a public IP and run it under your name and state that it is
an exit node at as many levels as possible (whois, website on some ports
(there is a template somewhere).

In my opinion this is the only way (along with other preparations) to
comfortably run an exit node. See
