ExitNodes for encrypted connects only are not possible. Why?

In 'git.torproject.org/checkout/tor/master/doc/spec/dir-spec.txt'
ExitNodes are defined as:

   "Exit" -- A router is called an 'Exit' iff it allows exits to at
    least two of the ports 80, 443, and 6667 and allows exits to at
    least one /8 address space.

I would like to setup my ExitNode for ports 443, 465, 563, 993, 995
(https, ssmtp, nntps, imaps, pop3s) only, but this is not possible.

What's the reason behind this? Is there any chance to loose this
restriction in one of the next releases?
