That entry doesn't cite "above and other reasons," but only one
reason for refraining from running an exit relay from one's home:
risk of police seizing hardware:

    Q: Should I run an exit relay from my home?

    A: No. If law enforcement becomes interested in traffic from
    your exit relay, it's possible that officers will seize your
    computer. For that reason, it's best not to run your exit
    relay in your home or using your home Internet connection.

This leaves one to wonder if preparation for such potential
seizure, such as isolation of "your computer" on which the exit
runs from other computer hardware effectively satisfies EFF's
objection to running an exit at home.
