Yeah, it seems a reasonably useful shortcut to me. However, I wouldn't use "wolfram" as the key. We already have a shortcut to Wolfram's MathWorld and there are a several other things by Wolfram already. I'd probably have wolframalpha:// work for when you can't remember which abbr. works. "Alpha" is a widely-used word but alpha:// seems reasonable as an abbreviation since there aren't a lot of web sites primarily named "alpha". wa:// seems an even nicer abbr. So I'd define those three.

    Both [wa://] and [wolframalpha://] have my vote. I'm skeptical about [alpha://].
