The Lexicon bit in the Manual of Exalted Power: Infernal specifically classifies Akuma as Exalted. I'm not saying that point needs to be argued; just saying that that was where I was getting that choice of phrase.
(Also, as an aside, can you get Half-Infernals? I originally thought that Infernals just made Demonbloods, but I can't find anywhere in the Scroll of Heroes that says that Infernals don't just make Half-Infernals, complete with mortal babies learning Yozi charms.)
And I realize that making Exaltations is murdering more of the mystique of the setting and you Just Shouldn't Do It, and it's unspeakable taboo, and bad form, and bad design, and there are no actual guidelines, and that there are no actual guidelines for a reason, and that I should just let it go.
But still...educated guess? Wild conjecture? Psychotic ramblings?
(EDIT: This line of thinking is also how Solars got necromancy.)
