VoiceXML 2.0 <exit> element interpretation

Hello All,
     I have a question regarding the interpretation of exit element in 
VoiceXML 2.0.  Suppose there is a filled element, with a prompt immediately 
followed by an exit element:

<filled>
  <prompt>
     Thanks for calling, goodbye!
  </prompt>
  <exit/>
</filled>

     Is the exit supposed to wait until the prompt has been fully played?  
Or should the exit be executed immediately after queuing the prompt?
     Section 4.1 says that interpretation will proceed ahead once prompts 
are queued, until a user input is required.  But it is not clear as to what 
to do when user input is not required.
     Also, section 5.3.9 on exit element only says that exit terminates all 
loaded documents, and I am not very clear whether this includes immediately 
stopping all ongoing prompts (even those in the queue).

Any clarification on this is highly appreciated.  Also, if the exit IS to be 
immediately executed, how can one create a script like above, where you 
prompt something, and then exit?

thanks,
Prakash
