I assume you are referring to a relay run at home.

I would discourage such a setup for the following reasons:

- this setup includes the risk that users will exit 
through your home broadband IP address (bad!) if tunnels break down
- such setups that introduce an additional hop decrease the user-experience
- most users will not be happy with an "10-14mbps" exit at a home broadband connection
- it is not clear to me why you would involve your home IP at all for your exit
if you have a VM in a datacenter

nonetheless, thanks for running relays,
