I'm not aware of a style guide, but in my code I call exit usually only from main mostly during initialization, e.g. when invalid command line parameters/configuration occured or a driver couldn't connect. To exit during a running node something really fatal must have happened as in comparison to anything else exit will definitely make it not working any more.

Referring to the style guide @wpd linked: exit in a library is just evil.
