There's no point in HTTPS if you're using an exit enclave. The traffic is encrypted in the Tor cloud, exits that cloud **on the service's localhost address**, and if it were encrypted, would be transmitted as ciphertext to the service port on the local interface. If you're proposing a threat model wherein loopback is an untrusted connection, you have bigger problems than, well, anything.
