Or run an exit node which exits only to itself, then run a filtering
proxy service which is reachable through that exit node.

If enough people did that, we could build a separately directory of
such services, and anyone using it would take load off the exit nodes
(and maybe get a faster browsing experience to boot?).

The Tor developers rightly don't want to put application layer
filtering into Tor itself, but that doesn't mean you can't build an
HTTP proxying service *on top of* Tor.
