    Potentially a good idea but may slow a busy site down to a crawl if it can't be disabled

  2. I like this idea in general as I discussed it with a couple of friends last week. However, site speed might go down for site with poor hosting. Also, this might trigger some abuse cases.

    It will be independently feature? I think that it's better to do in with import backlinks from google webmaster's tool.

  5. I think it's a good idea.

    The concept of pingbacks is accepted and implemented, but only for posts. Obviously ping backs can be and are abused.

    So getting pingbacks to the homepage won't make it worse but helps bloggers to know, if somebody is writing about them.

    Relying on external solutions like Google Analytics is not for everyone, because not everyone likes or is able to use advanced software and services.

  6. I want to add to Michael's point that for some users, there might be privacy and security issues involved, using external services like Google Analytics.
