exit nodes earn money?

With regards to the pickaproxy.com service we are setting up, I am interested in feedback from current Tor users and developers on the possibility of sharing earned subscription revenues with both the Tor project and exit node operators.  There are costs associated with operating our service and setting up a series of domains and servers to run it, and there are values that can be added to the basic Tor system that subscribers may be prepared to pay for.
I am thinking that earning some money might offset some of the risks associated with enabling an exit node for the benefit of all. Has this been discussed or considered?  Are there known issues in liability or law that come into play if participation is not simply voluntary and altruistic?
The logistics of making payments and transparency and privacy and auditing all would have to be addressed, of course, and suggestions are welcome.
