There are of course some solutions that violate what some people view as the burner ethic. I personally believe that when you have a scarce resource and too much demand that markets are the best answer. I personally have no problem with selling exodus preference to those who donate the largest amount to BRAF or BMProject or similar, but I suspect others will think it's non-burner to do it this way.
There was a constant stream of vehicles using the vendor exit (12 mile, right? I think they call it Point 1 or Point 2) during the entirety of our exodus. I even saw that "Christina" giant art car that that douchebag camp douchebags around in leaving that way. Cars, Pickups and vans with campers, etc. It would have added up to several hundred vendor vehicles, if it's just vendors. Somehow I think it's not just vendors. Maybe that heirarchy you describe already exists.
But, whatever. I did Monday this year because the fucktoy I brought with me had to get back home earlier. I almost always go late Monday night or Tuesday early. It's such a breeze. It rather laze about another day and have a nonstop ride home than waste an entire day in line and fighting all the other dopes who are out on Labor Day, if possible. If I only had a week off each year I'd arrive on Tuesday and leave on Tuesday. Fortunately, I don't. In fact I camp on the playa bare minimum four times per year.
