I don't see any reason why it shouldn't be made default and integrated
into existing extensions like ubufox (it's just Javascript, similar to
how Apple makes phone numbers links on the iPhone, so you can click on
them to dial them). It breaks nothing and only serves to make the life
of new users much easier.

It's a win-win.
