Might this be an instance where good, always working exit enclaving might be
of significance?

If you have a tor-check service on an exit enclave, only visits from
localhost are "Tor-routed" (excluding the trivial case). Others from Tor
nodes are "Tor-routed if this is not your IP address", while visits from the
public at large remain "Not Tor-routed".
