As far as I understand you, you're trying to work out a traffic
engineering policy that will cause tor to work better for most people
while only impacting a minority.

Ssh doesn't use much bandwidth; what it needs is low latency and
stable servers.  So if you are setting up a fast stable tor server,
you'd be doing some people a favour by opening port 22.  Since ssh
uses negligible bandwidth, you won't be impacting web traffic at all.
