This is a fairly good idea, though I wouldn't use these names.

Please, please, no.
"Man in the middle" is an attack where you impersonate server A to
server B, and server B to server A.
"Middleman" is a possible tor configuration that relays traffic.
These are technical terms with specific meanings; please don't make
users think that they are about to launch a hostile impersonation
attack when they're just going to run a server!

How about "client" "middleman server" and "exit server"? These are
the terms that Tor uses, after all.
