[tor-talk] variable speed limits on ports ...

Let's say I run an exit node, and I have a 10 Mb/s connection.
I join up, run for a while, get qualified as a good exit, speed checks out
at 10, and so on. All is well.
But then let's say that, at the OS level, I rate limit one of the TCP
ports I allow to exitto a much lower level - let's say I allow:
and 22,80,443 go full bore at 10 Mb/s, but I rate limit 6667 to 1 Mb/s.
How does this get categorized by the Tor network ? Do I continue to show
as a 10 Mb/s exit node ? Do I get labeled as a bad exit ? Perhaps lots
of exits do this and it is an accepted practice ?
I *think* the speed is tested via Tor network relay operations, and not on
a per-exit-port basis, so I suspect as long as I keep my intra-Tor traffic
running at 10, I get labeled as 10. Correct ?
I am more interested in how often this is seen, if ever, and if it would
be received badly.
