Something along those lines could probably work.  A really simple
implementation of giving top priority to servers might lead to a few
bad people running exit nodes ruining things for everyone, but that
can probably be solved.

You'd probably lose a bit of anonymity, but you'd still be able to
hide your IP address from the end servers, which is one of the main
features of Tor anyway.  For other situations you could always go
through the slower low-priority route.
