Considering the implications of exit-node operation, I don't expect
that pattern to end any time soon.

Perhaps it would be reasonable to do more promotion of hidden
services, OnionCat,  exit-enclaves, and other non-exit limited
services to make good use of what is likely to be an excess of
middleman capacity, and help drive more tor adoption?
