Personally, I dont think blocking port 80 or 6667 should be default and
that your text is a bit to much info to add to the torrc.

A notice on where to find the default exit policy has been added to torrc 
in the cvs (http://archives.seul.org/or/cvs/Mar-2005/msg00073.html).
What dou you think of adding another example?

#ExitPolicy reject *:80 # deny http, otherwise use the default policy
