They wouldn't only be exit connections, as many relays use 80/443 or
other combinations of those ports for their orport and dirport, to be
more accessible to users behind restrictive firewalls.  So if you're a
middle node or entry guard in a circuit you could still be making
outgoing connections out to other nodes on those ports.  But you'd
probably get an acceptable approximation anyway.
