my node spends most of the time handling somewhere between 15% and 50% of its
proven data rate capacity.  Occasionally it may sustain on the order of 70%

You are probably connected to some other Tor network than me :-). My exit node was on 100% all the time, until I reject everything except HTTP(s) traffic.

I think torrents on tor is hard question. We cannot restrict Tor, but torrenters are annoying us (right, me and some others). I prefer any kind of port-oriented QoS or so. http should have more priority than non-generic ports, because, probably, there are users waiting for responses. But it probably much harder to do than block Tor ips in bittorent clients ;-).
