Since "exit" is a language construct I think will be nice to write it without the parentesis even with status code or text, like include 'something'..
echo 'something'...
print 'something'... etc...
Ok you got the point..

Test script:
exit 'Something';
exit 0;

Expected result:

The reason that exit uses parenthesis is to avoid conflicts in grammar, it is not possible to write grammar that uses both and has no conflicts.
