I don't think this helps the common cases in a noticeable manner.

There is one long lived TLS connection between the Client and Guard, and inter-relay links converge toward the network being a complete graph. If anything I'd expect this to have more impact on the latter.

I guess it might help a tiny bit to do this at the exit?
