Sounds good. But what to do for now? Just creating a list of nodes which
only allow unencrypted traffic and put them into the ExcludeExitNodes
list? Shouldnt these nodes be excluded by default?
I'm unsure. I want to stress again that I'm not saying any operator is
doing anything evil, but I think we should find some way to avoid nodes
which have such weird exitpolicies.
