I put "an exit" in quotes because I think there are different
interpretations. I consider a Tor Exit to be a specialisation of a Tor
Node which allows connections beyond the Tor network, based on exit
rules, and which actually is utilised in that role, based on available
bandwidth and consensus weight.

Sure. Deciding to sell bycicles from an inflatable raft at Point Nemo is
a choice one could make, but is it a *good* choice? ;-)
